Enrollment: Limited: Advance sign-up required
Prereq: Experience with ArcMap

Many people use buffers in a GIS to estimate distances from a place or event, but buffers don’t allow for the fact that we usually travel on paths and roads, not as the crow flies. The Network Analyst extension in ArcGIS gives you the capability of creating buffers based on travel time or distance along roads and finding optimal routes using existing road networks. Experience with ArcGIS is required.
