Route Task Activity


Find a route between point locations.

Inheritance Hierarchy:



This activity helps you solve a routing problem by finding a least-cost path between multiple locations using a network service exposed by the ArcGIS Server REST API. You can route between two or more locations, optionally avoiding barriers, and finding the best sequence and getting driving directions.

In a Workflow:

This activity is useful in any scenario where you need to generate a route or directions, for example, to determine an optimal route to drive, stopping at a set of defined locations along a road network.
