I currently have a geometric network that I’ve been working with using the Utility Network Analyst tools. However, I’ve been trying to perform a few tasks that I’ve noticed the Network Analyst tools provide, but the Utility Network Analyst does not. Specifically, I want to place barriers at all locations specified by a point feature class – a functionality provided by the “Add Locations” tool in the Network Analyst Toolset. Is there a way to use the network analyst tools on a geometric network?
The answer, sadly, is no. As far as I can tell, ESRI has not released any geoprocessing tools for their Geometric Network. But it is possible to roll-your-own solution to get the same kind of tools by using existing open source libraries. I have a work-in-progress project along these exact lines.
