Free Esri Training Will Show How ArcGIS Network Analyst Solves Routing and Location Problems
An upcoming live training seminar will demonstrate how Esri’s ArcGIS Network Analyst technology can answer logistics and other questions such as: What is the quickest and most cost-effective way for a fleet of trucks to deliver 300 packages in one day? Where should a fire station be opened to ensure fast response time to a new residential development?
How many customers can reach a specific store or restaurant within five minutes?
To learn how to use the software extension, tune in to Using Network Analyst in ArcGIS Desktop 10 on Thursday, September 2, 2010. This seminar will air on www.esri.com/lts at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 3:00 p.m. (Pacific daylight time).
ArcGIS Network Analyst helps users conduct network-based spatial analysis such as calculating drive times, defining service areas, and completing optimum route and shortest path analyses.
Seminar attendees will learn how to
- Solve problems where network travel time or costs must be minimized.
- Work with time windows, curb approach restrictions, and other constraints.
- Find the best routes between multiple locations.
- Find the best set of routes for a fleet of vehicles.
- Find the optimal location for a new facility to minimize overall travel time or costs.
This seminar will be of interest to geographic information system (GIS) analysts, managers, dispatchers, planners, or researchers who want to use ArcGIS Desktop or ArcGIS Server to do distance-based analysis where distance or travel time is measured on transportation networks.
A broadband Internet connection and an Esri Global Account are needed to participate in the training seminar. Creating a global account is easy and free: visit www.esri.com/lts, click Login, and register your name and address. A few weeks after the live presentation, this seminar will be archived and available for viewing on the Esri Training Web site.
