Hello,

I am a student working on their final project.  I have geocoded capital cities and have geocoded theme park locations.  

I am trying to find the nearest theme park to each state capital; however, I want to do it based on roads/driving distance/time.   Currently, when I try to run the 'Generate Near Table', I get results; however, I believe it is only based on straight-line distance and not actual road distance.

Is there anyway to do such a thing? Basically base a 'generate near table' on roads/actual distance by travel/car

Thanks
