Hi guys,

I'm looking for some guidance on how to approach this problem.

What I'm trying to do is automate locations of utility poles that feed residential properties.

Some of the restrictions that I have are:

The poles can be no more than 50m apart
Ideally the poles to be able to connect to a maximum of 12 properties.

I have Street line data and address point data for the homes & the poles locations would be on/offet from the street lines.

I'm not sure how I would go about appraoching this & I was hoping soembody could guide me on some techniques or methods I should be looking at?

Thanks in advance for your help guys.

ps. I'm using ArcGIS 10 Editer.
