The Network Analyst workshop will be a complete overview of the Network Analyst extension for ArcGIS. This workshop, geared towards Network Analyst beginners, will teach network-based spatial analysis techniques such as routing, service area, travel directions, closest facility, and location-allocation. Network Analyst utilizes in depth network datasets that model real world network conditions such as speed limits, turn restrictions, height restrictions, and one-way streets. After completing this workshop, you will be able to use Network Analyst to find the shortest routes, locate the closest facilities, determine optimal locations for facilities, define service areas based on travel time or distance, and more!
Dates: August 5th-6th
