REDLANDS, Calif., Aug. 31, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- An upcoming live training seminar will demonstrate how Esri's ArcGIS Network Analyst technology can answer logistics and other questions such as: What is the quickest and most cost-effective way for a fleet of trucks to deliver 300 packages in one day? Where should a fire station be opened to ensure fast response time to a new residential development? How many customers can reach a specific store or restaurant within five minutes?

ArcGIS Network Analyst helps users conduct network-based spatial analysis such as calculating drive times, defining service areas, and completing optimum route and shortest path analyses.
Seminar attendees will learn how to:
- Solve problems where network travel time or costs must be minimized.
- Work with time windows, curb approach restrictions, and other constraints.
- Find the best routes between multiple locations.
- Find the best set of routes for a fleet of vehicles.
