How does one get the word 'Exit' into the driving directions?
I have a network and i setup the driving directions but i have not really integrated exits into my dataset yet.
So my directions output says something like :
- Go southeast on IS 68
- Turn left on US 219
But what i really want is something like 'Take exit 15 to US 219'
My exits feature class is just a set of points that lie near the actual exit. But in most cases i have a single point for more than one exit - like in the middle of a cloverleaf.
If i had better exit data is that how i get that integrated into the driving directions?
Would it be as a Landmark?
