	%X The paper deals with cartographic visualisation of
results of transport accessibility monitoring with the use of a semiautomated
method of unipolar anamorphosis, developed by the
authors in the GIS environment. The method is based on
transformation of distance in the map to values of a geographical
phenomenon. In the case of time accessibility it is based on
transformation of isochrones converted into the form of concentric
circles, taking into account selected topographic and thematic
elements in the map. The method is most suitable for analyses of
accessibility to or from a centre and for modelling its long-term
context.
The paper provides a detailed analysis of the procedures and
functionality of the method, discussing the issues of coordinates,
transformation, scale and visualisation. It also offers a discussion of
possible problems and inaccuracies. A practical application of the
method is illustrated by previous research results by the authors in
the filed of accessibility in Czechia.
