I have three feature classes:
Streets. The points are not coincident on vertices of either of the line feature classes - they are located next to the routes (red line):
The line feature classes are not coincident at end points - they were digitised as long lines mostly, intersecting each other. The routes were traced along the roads. At first I thought the line feature classes were going to be a problem, but according to this excellent blog post, setting my connectivity as
Any Vertex during the creation of the network dataset will solve that problem by creating junctions where any of the lines intersect.
My problem is that I want to create a multimodal network dataset, with the
Routes representing the routes the bus would travel, and
Streets are where pedestrians would walk.
Bus Stops represent the transfer points where the pedestrian could stop walking along the streets and start travelling on a bus route.
According to page 33 of the slides from the Network Analyst technical workshop at this year's ESRI conference, it says I will need to create transfer edges between the stop and the route, so that the two are 'connected'. How do I create these edges - is there a setting in the network dataset creation wizard where I have to specify this?
