We aim to rethink and systematize accessibility potential models, and to investigate what they measure and under what conditions, what characteristics they possess by way of analogy with a gravitational field and what features they “inherit”. The question is what has potential, what a particular potential value means, and why we use this value todescribe social space. What conclusions can be drawn from a potential model? To answer this latter question, the values forecast by the models were compared with traffic data. Potentials measure the position of a spatial domain compared to the rest of the areas, and the impacts of the mass distribution of the particular spatial division at the same time. In the present paper we make an effort to filter out these effects, and to disaggregate potentials.
