When using Network Analyst's "Closest Facility" tool, if the facilities and Incidents do not lie on the network line (road), the tool starts at the point on the network line closest to the Facility/Incident.
However, a portion of my data will not create a route due to dead end lines in my road network being closest to the points.
I would like the "Closest Facility" tool to utilize the next nearest road segment until it comes up with a possible shortest route path, as I need every incident to have some road distance to the facility, regardless of bad roads.
Is such a thing possible and if so how might one do it?
Background: 14,646 Incidents, 6 facilities, working with up to 200 km distances, 13,793 routes were generated.
edit: 12/13/16, 5:31 pm Please see how the well closest distance (red lines) connect to some isolated roads. I'm not quite sure how to encourage the tool to either ignore these isolated roads or reach for roads that have a path.
