Accessing NA to name network segments

Discussion created by mfrancis_CoServ on Mar 5, 2014
Hey all,

I would like to use python to run through our  distribution network, name the various segments and return the spatial extent of each segment.  The network, visually, branches like a tree. The first segment begins at the trunk branches somewhat, and either stops at a control feature or a service tap.  Each control feature marks the beginning of a new segment, which in turn branch and continue down the network, stopping at other control features further along the network or eventually at service taps.  As best I can tell, I would use the arcpy.na.MakeServiceAreaLayer call to do that, basically looping through each control feature and tracing from it until I hit another control feature or a service tap.

1) Will this in fact work,
2) which parameters are integral in getting that to work?

Thanks,
Matt
