I have been tinkering with a network I created and generating service areas. Comparing it to ESRI generated service areas (using ArcGIS Online) for the same point shows a drastically different service area.
So I started looking up network dataset tutorials. Most of these show you how to create a network, but not what a fully functional and accurate one actually has in terms of data (roads, rails, bus stops, stop signs, traffic signals....etc).
So my main question is, what data should I have in my dataset and what would the network settings look like?
My secondary question, is what features and settings does the ESRI network contain?
