I'm new to ArcGIS, and I have just some basic knowledge about it. I have approximately 6000 locations with their coordinates (latitude and longitude), and I want to calculate the distance matrix for these location, but I need road (driving) distances not Euclidean. Please see the attached Excel file. I know I need to use the ArcGIS extension Network Analyst, which has a OD Cost Matrix option. I can plot my locations, no problem with that. But I cannot find a Haiti (Port-au-Prince) network dataset to calculate the distance matrix. I have tried to find online Haiti driving layers and different options including using openstreetmap. And it didn't work out, network analyst functions grayed out.
Could you please help me? I need this distance matrix for my dissertation.
No, I didn't get any errors, but when I try to use the network analyst tool, it was grayed out. I think I couldn't build the network correctly from the street data. Maybe it wasn't a right dataset. By the way, I forgot to attach my locations, I fix this.
Assuming you have a license for the Network Analyst Extension, you need to 'turn it on' You can do that in ArcCatalog; go to the Customize Menu and select Extensions. Or do the same thing in ArcMap.
edit- looks like Wes Miller posted his response when I was typing mine...
