This tool calculates and plots the fastest route between points, by the chosen method of transport. It returns complete multi-modal turn-by-turn directions.
Only the key parameter fields are configurable. The more complex parameter fields (available in the Advanced tool) take standard, sensible values.
|Departure Locations||The point layer of departure locations||Picklist|
|Travel Mode||Method of transport||Picklist|
|Time Zone||Time zone||Picklist|
|Departing / Arriving||Whether the chosen time will be a departure or arrival time||Picklist|
|Departing / Arriving Time||The departure or arrival time. This will get updated as per the time zone selected.||Calendar Format - dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm|
|Arrival Locations||The point layer of arrival locations||Picklist|
|Output Style||1. By travel time - returns one linestring per end-to-end route, colour-coded by total journey time
2. By transport type - returns one linestring per route segment, colour-coded by method of transport
3. By journey – returns one linestring per end-to-end route
|Output Layer||Where to save the output layer – NB must be saved into the project Geodatabase||Folder connection|
Things to note
The information generated in the Attribute Table differs based on the ‘Output Style’ selected:
By transport type – generates detailed turn-by-turn directions, with one line for each leg of each route
By travel time / By journey – generates a summarized output, with one line per end-to-end route
