I am using network analyst to determine service areas for 250 facilities and would like to incorporate an attribute column from my facility shapefile into my polygon service area output. I plan on rasterizing the service areas and want to use a quality attribute column from the facilities as my raster value.
Is there a step in the service area creation process that allows me to add attributes from the facilities? I realize that I can copy the column over, but I am trying to automate this as much as possible for future calculations.
Hi Elizabeth. Unfortunately, there is currently no way for the polygons to automatically keep a field from Facilities. You have to first create the polygons and then do a join with Facilities using the Facility ID column in polygons and the Object ID column in Facilities.
