Abstract: A metric space can be naturally endowed with both a topology and a coarse structure. We examine the converse to this. Given a topology and a coarse structure we give necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of a metric giving rise to both of these. We conclude with an application to the construction of the coarse assembly map.
