I am trying to find a route with a target length.

E.g. I put in a start and end, and ArcMap spits out a route with a total length close to 1000m (2000m, etc.)

So far no try w/ the Network Analyst has been successfull, as well as similar questions on this site.

I have successfully generated a network already, but it only finds shortest routes, but not routes w/ fixed length.

Using ArcGIS Desktop 10.6

  • in case someone stumbles upon this: there is no way to make it work. In fact, this problem is NP-Complete, so the only way to solve it efficiently is using a heuristic. If you find such a heuristic, please let me know. – ht_ Nov 18 '18 at 22:13
