Hello everyone,
i need your help.
I want to calculate some routes. What i got is:
- a network dataset with all the streets digitalized
- a DEM with slope data (.lyr file)

What i want to do is, to calculate the best route according to the slope information i got.
I've absolutely no idea on how to combine the slope information with every street stored in the network dataset.
Hope you can help me!

Given that a shortest path minimizes the overall cost of a path, can you describe how you would use the "slope" to provide the best route. Once that is clear perhaps someone can suggest how to solve this problem.

Allright. My plan is to combine the information stored in the DEM raster with my polylines in the streetnetwork, so that every pixxel of the DEM attaches to every pixxel of the streetnetwork. Is there any way to get the information of the DEM to the streetnetwork. Maybe i can attach the median slope of every path?

Take a look at the Interpolate Shape tool. More info here:
