Use your own Network Dataset.
Use and Manage your Own Street Data
Organizations can use and manage their own Network Dataset and locators in ArcLogistics 10, allowing easier localization and street data management. Street data can be in any Esri format that contains a Network Dataset, allowing regional routing in multiple continental areas.
Advanced Street Data Attributes
Take advantage of a more powerful and realistic street dataset for routing. ArcLogistics 10 consumes a Network Dataset that has the ability to include attributes and functionality for restrictions, impedances, barriers, and speed management.
Create barriers that reflect real-world conditions.
Paratransit Business Rules
Solve “ordered pair” (pickups and drop-offs) as well as tunable settings that honor ridership rules (time on vehicle) and vehicle capacity constraints (oxygen tanks, wheelchairs).
Create or import geographic areas or points to use as route zones. These areas can be tied to routes as hard zones where routes only operate with them, or used as gravity points so that routes tend to operate in that area.
Provide drivers with detailed manifests and driving directions.
Provide Driving Directions
Create route summary reports and provide drivers with detailed manifests and driving directions. Or send your stops and routes to ArcLogistics Navigator.
Integrate with other Esri Products and Technology
ArcLogistics 10 uses ArcGIS Engine as the base technology, along with some network extension components. Routing projects are stored in a file geodatabase for virtually unlimited capacity. ArcLogistics consumes the VRP solver in network extension to solve routing problems. A Network Dataset is used for the routing network. Any organization that can generate a Network Dataset can use it in ArcLogistics 10.
