When I create a model in ArcGIS using the Network Analyst Tools, I am able to create Locations and make the Route Layer and Solve. However, I need to be able to add barriers as well as locations, before solving for the Route. Is there a way to do this? Thanks! Renee
Barriers (Point, Line and Polygons Barriers) can be created/per-loaded before the solving to route.
Loading Point Barriers
When a point barrier is loaded or created, it snaps to the nearest network edge or junction within a search tolerance. The position of the barrier on the network is specified by the network location fields (
Line and Polygon Barriers also supported
Edit to add information
This screen shot might help clear it up - just add a new location of "barrier" type to your network analyst layer. In the screen shot, all 3 (start/end/barriers) are feature sets for the user to provide input with.
The thing that I'm having trouble with now (with the new model that includes barriers) is that when I run the model, then when I click on locations, I don't know if the process sees the locations as barriers or stops. I get error messages when it runs. How can I indicate which I am clicking on when it runs? Thanks.
