I want to be able to find the best route to a number of fire inspection sites on a given day by inspector.
It sounds like the Solve Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP) is what I need to publish as a Geoprocessing Service to our internal ArcGIS Server instance.
I have been looking for instructions on how to do this, but have not found a good tutorial. One of the problems that may be inherent in the data is that it is not in the format needed. It doesn't look as though I can map an existing layer to the input VRP depots.
Is there a way to field map the attributes from an input layer to the VRP layer?
Once I get over this hurdle, if possible, I would like to use the routing service in Web AppBuilder. This all sounds possible, but I am not finding much to get started.
Thanks for any assistance,
