Location allocation model
It is used to find the best location for certain facility depending on the identified needs
In arcinfo/workstation, we can apply “location allocation model by providing:
- A polygon layer with an attribute represents the needs
- The number of facilities required to correspond to the needs
The result will be:
The best locations for the facilities that achieve the optimal site. A spider map is produced.
Network Analyst (ArcGIS 10) can do part of the question but not in the conditions and logic described above!!!!
My repeated question:
Why we don’t have in ArcGIS all what’s there in ArcInfo workstation???????
The tool that is used to be in ArcInfo Workstation can be used for design (best location). It answers the question of where is the best location of a particular facility based on demand and minimum travel distance (this can be the actual roads instead of aerial distanc).
It would be great if you manage guys to bring this tool to Pro such that the following question can be answered
Where is the best location to contract 5 new hospitals in different zones in a city considering the demand (population) and minimum travel distance?
