Hi,

I am a newbie. Here is my question:

I have to get minimum cost paths (in terms of travel time or distance) between each pair of some 5000 locations. I have the location coordinates which I snapped to the network.

For creating the network, I have NAVTEQ Navstreets data. I created a network using just streets shapefile but I am not sure whether it is correct or not. I did not use z-level information which is present as a separate shapefile. I got results for minimum distance routes but they do not make sense (most routes do not include interstates which should give minimum travel time).

I need some pointers as to how to proceed with the Navteq data to getting minimum distance or minimum time routes between each destination pair. Also is it possible to get k-shortest paths instead of just 1 shortest paths?

I hope the question is clear. But please let me know if you all need some more details.

Thanks

Aayush

You can get some data processing tools from the ArcGIS resource center to help with NAVTEQ data.
See below:

You can use the route solver with the "routename" property to load all the 5000 location pairs into a single route and solve. You can read more on routename here:
