Businesses and government agencies perform network analysis to find the most efficient routes–those that meet customer service requirements while minimizing fuel, labor, and other costs–and to find optimal locations for facilities to attract or serve the most customers. ArcGIS Network Analyst is used to model transportation networks and solve problems in which network travel time or cost must be minimized. This seminar discusses different types of network problems and demonstrates a variety of real-world network analysis applications.
Who Should Attend
GIS analysts, managers, dispatchers, planners, and researchers who want to perform GIS-based routing and transportation network analysis. Those working in the transportation, logistics, public safety, local government, and business industries will find the seminar of particular interest.
Learn How To

- Perform a location-allocation analysis to create service areas based on drive time.
- Determine the optimal location for a new facility based on drive time.
- Given a group of facilities serving an area, identify which facility is the best candidate to close while maintaining acceptable service area coverage.
