I've started creating routes utilizing Network Analyst with a municipal centerline. I quickly noticed that a few of the routes were incorrect as per the restrictions for turns at given intersections.

I found a municipal turn restrictions shapefile that contains what I need: Turn Restrictions

Here is the geodatabase feature dataset which contains my centerline that I used to initially start creating routes. Elevations, speed, and one-way streets are already incorporated into this file. There is also a blank turn feature class. geodatabase feature dataset

I have not been able to migrate the data from the shapefile into a workable format that the turn feature class can recognize.

Following the steps on this ESRI site: Link

address what I'm dealing with concerning the shapefile turn data leads me to a dead end, notably that the second step utilizing the "turn table to turn feature class" tool requires ArcVIEW or ArcINFO table format giving me the error: Error

My other option was to try to load the table data from the shapefile into the turn feature class which showed that parts of the data fields match, but the shapefile (whether it is a feature class or not, is missing all the "edge" field parameters while matching with all of its remaining fields which can be seen here:

Missing Data match

Matching Data

In this case, is there a step I have missed or is there a workflow within Catalogue to build this edge data from the shapefile data?

  • Thank you for this link. Unfortunately it is completely beyond my realm of knowledge at this point in time as my coding skills = 0 but I shall read through it and also re-frame this query to be more clear. Thank you for the time you've taken today! – Chris Medyna May 20 '18 at 22:47
  • You may want to vote for this ArcGIS Idea to provide a Tool for importing turns from table in network dataset. It took me quite some effort to develop that ArcPy workaround for something that I could imagine many managing road network navigation might want to be able to do. – PolyGeo May 20 '18 at 22:51
  • I hope my edit is an improvement, and I shall try to wrap my head around your work. – Chris Medyna May 20 '18 at 23:41
  • I do think that this is a duplicate of gis.stackexchange.com/questions/214719/… but will hold off on making that conclusion for now to give others a chance to come up with something simpler either here or there. – PolyGeo May 21 '18 at 0:02
