The article deals with accessibility development in Czechia since the setting up of Czechoslovakia in 1918 till the year of planned completion of the main motorways and train corridors in 2020. One hundred years is a sufficiently long period to understand many of geographical processes related to accessibility patterns. The main goal is to digitalize transport networks for every ten years dates of Census and build accessibility models with average speeds, times for changing between trains and waiting times on stations, etc. The project is also focused on calculating the accessibility of Prague making isochrone maps and deals with a thematic cartography method – radial anamorphosis – as an ideal method for visualization of isochrone surfaces. The results will show the exact time period from which road transportation overtook trains in time accessibility or vice versa. Even though accessibility is investigated in relation to the capital of the Czech Republic, the methodology could be used for any other place in the country.
