# Network and Dynamic

Segmentation
Chapter 16

Introduction
A network consists of connected linear
features.
Dynamic segmentation is a data model
that is built upon lines of a network and
allows the use of realworld coordinates
with linear measures such as
mileposts.
!oth models must ha"e the appropriate
attributes for realworld applications.

Introduction
A#C\$IN%& can work with both
network and dynamic
segmentation
Arc'iew with Network Analyst can
do network model

Network
A network is a line co"erage( which
is topologybased and has the
appropriate attributes for the )ow
of ob*ects such as tra+c.
,-amples. links( turns( oneway
streets( o"erpass( underpass/
impedance

0ink Impedance
0ink impedance. measure of the cost
of tra"ersing a link/ cost rather than
length( such as tra"el time 123 "s 13
mph4.

6urn Impedance

Network Applications
Closest %acility

## Computes shortest paths from the

selected location to all candidate
facilities and then chooses the closest
facility

Network Applications
Allocation

## Study of spatial distribution of resources

through a network

## ,+ciency is response time

0ocationAllocation

## :inimi>e use of resources using facilities

and at the same time meeting ob*ecti"es

Network Applications

Dynamic Segmentation
!uilt upon arcs of a network
!asic elements of routes( sections( and
e"ents
#oute is a collection of sections and
resides in a line co"erage as a subclass
Section refers directly to arcs in the line
co"erage and pro"ides measures to
route system
,"ents are occurrences related to the
route system

Creating #outes
&n new arcs
