How did Google Street View did the Route calculation?

Hello all,

Have anyone ever done a path calculation without using the physical address? I tried to do this with common apps out there, but all of them require a physical address of the start and endpoints. But for my case, I want to get a sort of navigation that can cover all of the drivable roads in the town.

For example, is there a way to select a certain part of the map and calculate the efficient path/route to cover all of the roads? It should minimize driving/walking time, distance, and reduce any overlap.

I think Google did something similar when they were mapping Google Street view. I think they did not use hundreds and thousands of physical addresses to calculate the route.

Thank you,

You'd probably want to ask Google how they did it.

Are you using ESRI's Network analyst with which to develop a route?

That should just about do it....
