Network datasets

About network datasets

Network datasets are built on the dataset extensibility model, meaning they leverage data elements and the IDatasetContainer2 interface for creation and updates. Unlike geometric networks, which are composed of complex features, network datasets contain simple features, meaning they do not have custom behavior. To perform connectivity analysis, there are interfaces and methods that are analogous to those of the geometric network; specifically, INetworkForwardStarEx and INetworkForwardStarAdjacencies.
