I have two data layers that I want to use in a network analysis for the shortest route analysis for a cyclist:
- road network
- cycle paths
I want to find a shortest route for a cyclist that can switch between road layer and cycle path anytime where they intersect.
Problem is that sometimes the cycle network lies on the top of the road network but does not align properly. I am not sure how to use the data in network analysis.
Should I merge these two data sets first and use the feature to line tool to create intersections of the street and cycle network, or is this a case of a multimodal network?
I work with Arc GIS 10.2
