Hi all

I am currently working on a script that runs a least cost path restricted by viewshed. I have a starting point, calculate viewshed, use least cost path to determine a path through the viewshed, and then travel down the determined path by a percentage, and start the process again until the destination is reached. The tool runs but it is inconsistent, as it get stuck for reasons that I cannot determine. There is always area for the viewshed, and least cost path calculation but it seems to break down and not perform. Does anyone have any ideas or know what the problem could be? Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
