ESCOBAR, Diego A; MARTINEZ, Sebastian  and  MONCADA, Carlos A. Relationship between PM10 and Conditions of Urban Territorial Accessibility in Manizales (Colombia). Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2016, vol.27, n.6, pp.273-284. ISSN 0718-0764.

The relationship between particulate matter PM10 and the conditions of urban territorial accessibility are studied. The information analyzed includes data from six monitoring stations of the Manizales ‘city in Colombia. The Inverse Distance Weigthing (IDW) method of interpolation is applied to the stations' data to calculate the influence of the particulate matter on the city area. The interpolation is related with calculations of the Global Accessibility Average obtained from a Kriging Ordinary geostatistical model. Conclusive results were obtained about the relation between PM10 concentrations with sectors that require higher or lower values of mean travel time. Finally, areas, housing and population affected by particulate matter concentrations are analyzed in their average travel time of whole city.

Keywords : IDW; PM10; monitoring; accessibility; geostatistics.
