A catchment area map displays the geographic areas serviced by a site, such as a hospital, school, or store. When creating catchment area maps, it’s difficult to figure out where to draw the boundaries. This is because you have to pull together multiple disparate data sources, including population, location of buildings, roadways, terrain, elevation, waterways, type of land cover, etc.
Catchment area maps are generally created in one of two ways: by hiring geospatial experts to do complex, computer-intensive modeling, or by having locals who know the area drive around the location and mark boundaries on a paper map.
Requires hiring teams of experts to create the map.
Requires either extensive computer processing time or physical travel time.
Cannot easily be updated without performing the entire analysis again.
