I was hoping somebody might be able to help me out with this. I'm trying to use Arcmap 10.1 to find all the areas along a road network (a county roads layer in this case) that are a certain driving distance from a single origin point. In essence, this would be akin to a service area analysis, except there is only a single facility used rather than a whole list.

Applicability: trying to find where a subject could move to within the county (using census block layers) if they want to live no more than, for instance, an hour's drive from work/school/etc.

Any suggestions?

Are you trying to draw a polygon where its vertices are determined as 1 hour driving from a specific point, then do a cut of the road layers that are within that polygon, and then determine what the map looks like? –  dassouki Mar 26 '13 at 1:02
