I have a feature set of locations, made up of several points.

I have the Network Analyst extension for ArcMap, and a feature set of all the streets in the area I'm looking at.

How can I create drive time polygons (polygons of the areas I can reach, for each point feature, within a certain number of minutes) using these tools?

So far I've only found tutorials for doing this with the Business Analyst extension, which I do not have and is not available on MyESRI.

    first you have to create a network dataset based on your street data - see desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/latest/extensions/network-analyst/… – Mesa Apr 24 at 19:23

    It might help your search to know that another term for "drive time polygons" is "isochrone polygons." – csk Apr 24 at 19:25
  • Once you have a network dataset, there are three steps in ArcMap: create a "service area analysis layer" with your desired time, add locations to the service area layer, and solve. – smiller Apr 24 at 23:47

Consolidating info from the comments --

First you have to create a network dataset based on your street data - see https://desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/latest/extensions/network-analyst/exercise-1-creating-a-network-dataset.htm

Once you have a network dataset, there are three steps in ArcMap: create a "service area analysis layer" with your desired time, add locations to the service area layer, and solve.
