I work for a organization who uses a very labor intensive routing program for school district transprotation routing. I would like to switch over to ESRI solution using Network Analsyt. Our district services approx 65,000 students of which about half require transportation to 67 schools. We have a fleet of about 400+ buses. We keep growing and have out grown our current process.
I do have many off and on years of ArcGIS expeirience but mostly on single workstation.
I guess my beginning questions would be on reccomended reference materials so I can approach this the right way. I will have to create a test network to demonstrate the capability and advantages of a geodatabase to support not only the Transportation group but other divisions within the district.
I would appreciate any advice from current users of the best approach I should take. Since I'm starting from scratch I would like to stay on tract.
Thanks in advance for your time
