I have been working with spatial analyst tutorial on a Personal project. Now I am working on FINDING THE BEST ROUTE(for creating a road to access the new school site).
I would like to apply the concept to my project of Finding the best street in a city to be turned into Pedestrian ONLY street for accessing the new train station site[MY Project]...
I am sure I will need data such as traffic count, traffic accident, green spaces, etc..??. Which I have...
Can anyone point me to a tutorial that I can use to create such a spatial analysis?
How to determine what street can/should be pedestrian?
I hope this makes sense.
Thank you in advance.
It sounds like you would benefit from using the Network Analyst extension (if you have this). Here is a tutorial on using this:
Another potential approach besides Network Analyst would be to use the Spatial Analyst extension to do Suitability Analysis and/or Cost-Weighted Distance analysis.

I decided to use Spatial analyst to find the best route from multiple parks(A, B, C,D) to a destination X.
though, the tutorial that I am following is looking at creating a new road.so, it uses Land use to find a cost surface map.
In my case, I do not need to create a new road because I have existing roads.
1. can I skip this step? How do I go about it?
2. Can I generate distances from all parks (within 1Mile of the destination X) at once or do I need to do One park at the time?
Thank you again
