geocode the points of interest. then take your road centerline shapefile and create a buffer around it that is adequate for your needs (as some points of interest may be 40' off the road, etc) then do a spatial join of all POIs that fall inside the road buffer.
Im going to add this answer here for other people who might be looking for a same or similar thing. What I did was downloaded the Shapefile for all roads from http://www.naturalearthdata.com/downloads/10m-cultural-vectors/roads/ as per Mapperz's suggestion above. I downloaded QGis and imported the Shapefile in it. The i managed to export the Shapefile as a ...
OpenStreetMap is a crowd-sourced spatial dataset. The free download server (http://download.geofabrik.de/) provides access to daily-updated information. Not sure about traffic volumes though.
The solution I adopted to this followed on from another response from @Chris W at How do you remove isolated roads from a bigger network? where he use a 'kludge' of a service area. In my case, in QGIS I created a single central point to the network and use v.net alloc for a netwok allocation which (I think) found all connected roads. I used this in the ...
So I couldn't figure out what was wrong but I created a new arcmap file and reloaded the shapefiles onto it and everything was working properly again.
The linked post will give you your answer... But those profile graphs are pretty useless graphics. The point thing will work, but might miss the actual maximum or you might needlessly create far too many points. I think you could avoid it all by using the Add Surface Information tool from the 3D Analyst toolbox and asking for Z_MAX. ...
