Actually, the second map seems to show the time it takes to travel from any major city (defined as a place with more then 50.000 inhabs or so) to that point on earth. That's why there are white spots even in Australia, which usually take more than a day to get to from EU. I think the map is flawed in assuming only 10 km/h as travel speed on tracks. This may be true for countries with a lot of wood or similar vegetation, I don't think this is true for steppe or desert areas where one can always open a new track when the old one is in too bad a shape.
