Hello. I need to determine the distance from a single point to several thousand points, both Euclidean and Manhattan. For Euclidean I have used the Near tool. For the Manhattan distance, instead of using Closest Facility, I created a Make Closest Facility. I did this to avoid credit usage. Can I achieve the same thing using Make Closest Facility? We have StreetMap Premium and its routing layer. Or is there another tool I can use?
You can definitely use your local StreetMap premium data and the OD Cost Matrix Solver (will work faster than the Closest Facility if you do not need the actual route geometry returned). However these network analyst solvers return back the shortest path distance. They do not return back Euclidean or Manhattan distances as those are based on the coordinates of the locations and not on the street network.
Hello, Jay. I may have misspoke when I said Manhattan. What I need is the network or routing distance from each of about 2500 destinations to a single origin. What I am getting now when I use OD Cost Matrix or Closest Facility is the distance from the destinations to the network. Perhaps I am inputting information incorrectly.
In other words I need to knw the distance from point A to point B, point A to point C, point A to point D....
