Southampton, UK, September 17, 2007: Snowflake Software announces support for ArcGIS Network Analyst, ESRI’s ArcGIS extension for network-based spatial analysis including routing, travel directions and closest facility analysis.
Snowflake Software’s GO Loader provides a unique way to depict the OS MasterMap ITN Layer. It generates linework that provides an accurate cartographic representation of a restriction, clearly identifying how it applies to the road network and how it could potentially affect the user. This clear and precise representation is essential when a traveler needs to be able to change direction based on the re-routing requirements, particularly when time is of essence as is the case with emergency vehicles.
Network Analyst from ESRI turns the ITN layer into a logical network. It enables the user to set up weightings such as: traffic density, roadworks, temporal restrictions etc. By utilizing these capabilities with GO Loader’s complex geometry processing capabilities, users can
across the entire ITN Network, with full support for turns and one-way restrictions
