Hi,

ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET comes with a RoutingTask which works great for solving routing problem.  We need to tackle a different type of network problem, namely -- solving for Closest Facility.  Is that even possible within Runtime SDK if we are provided with a routing package?  I see that this is supported in other Runtime platforms, but not in .NET.  If it is not possible in the SDK, is this type of network solving available in ArcGIS for Server?  Any other suggestions?

Thanks!

Good news! It will be in 10.2.7, which _JUST_ went live.

Hi,

We did not include the Closest Facility Task in the .NET SDK, but it is on the roadmap for a future release. It's entirely possible to programmatically use a Closest Facility task/service by making the appropriate calls and parsing the results. I'll investigate if we have anything which will help you.

Cheers

Mike

Do you have an idea of which particular "future release" where this will be available? Quartz release or one of the maintenance release (10.2.x)?  Thanks.

In regards to ArcGIS Server, it appears that you wouldn't be able to leverage OD Cost Matrix as a Network Analyst Service. The Network Analyst Service appear to only support Route, Closest Facility, Service Area, Vehicle Routing Problem, and Location Allocation as of the 10.3.1 release.

On the other hand, you should be able to solve an OD Cost Matrix using a Geoprocessing Service. You could leverage ModelBuilder, Python, or ArcObjects to build the tool that you'd publish to server to execute this task. As long as the tool is hosted on ArcGIS Server you should be able to connect to it from any client that can leverage REST (i.e. ArcMap, ArcGIS Runtime, JavaScript, etc.) and execute the tool.

Hi Mike,

Do you have a timeline of when the Closest Facility Task would be available for .NET SDK?
