Find Population Inside a Drive Time Radius

In this example, we will show how to use multiple pages on Free Map Tools to estimate the population inside a ‘drive time’ radius. We will then find the estimated population within a 1 hour drive from Atlanta, Georgia.


      1. Make your drive time radius. E.g. http://www.freemaptools.com/how-far-can-i-travel.htm?address=Atlanta,%20Georgia&speed=60&time=1&accuracy=10&u=km&hw=false&m=false&mode=DRIVING
      2. Once processing has finished, choose Save Area from the User Menu found near the top right of the web page
      3. Give the new area a name

        Drive Time From Atlanta

      4. Go to http://www.freemaptools.com/find-population.htm
      5. Choose User Menu > Load Area
      6. Click your new area name from the list to load it
      7. Click the Find Population button

The estimated population is shown below the map.

Please use this example as a basis for your own needs and uses across different pages on Free Map Tools

The Settings option inside the User Menu on Free Map Tools can be used to change the appearance of the markers on the map. You can adjust the size of the markers by selecting Large, Medium or Small. You can also change the opacity of the marker using the slider. A preview marker is displayed on the Settings window. Once you have the correct settings, click Apply. If you do not want to make any changes, click Cancel.
