Drawing routes in Google Earth or Google Maps looks very cool. As point move along the route with specific speed. I am looking same functionality in Arcmap. Can anyone figure out how?

I think you need to provide more details.. what version of ArcMap are you using - do you want to create an application that does this, or simply in ArcMap? – GISKid Aug 27 '13 at 15:37
Network Analysis would be required. but you will find it limited - this is the javascript version… – Mapperz Aug 27 '13 at 16:02
I think Tracking Analyst is more likely than Network Analyst but there may be other options. Where do the point locations you want to track come from (GPS, file, DBMS, etc)? – PolyGeo Aug 27 '13 at 22:22
