Available with Network Analyst license.
You can perform some tasks that are related to the ArcGIS Network Analyst extension without the extension enabled; however, to have access to all of its functionality, the license must be enabled for the extension. This topic provides an overview of the functionality that is available depending on whether the ArcGIS Network Analyst extension is licensed.
ArcGIS Pro with the ArcGIS Network Analyst extension license
All the network analysis and network dataset capabilities are available when the ArcGIS Network Analyst extension is enabled. You can perform any of the network analyses that the ArcGIS Network Analyst extension provides, and you can also create, edit, and build network datasets. This is true whether you have a Basic, Standard, or Advanced license.
Basic, Standard, and Advanced
Keep in mind that although Network Analyst functionality doesn't encompass editing, you may need to edit features that participate, or will participate, in a network dataset. In this case, your license level (Basic, Standard, or Advanced) determines which editing tools are available and may affect the accuracy of the results. For example, the Standard license level includes functionality that Basic does not, such as topologies, subtype editing, and advanced feature dataset management. The Advanced license level builds on the capabilities provided by Standard to include tools such as Integrate, which creates vertices on intersecting lines. Higher license levels help you to more quickly and accurately model transportation networks.
ArcGIS Pro without the ArcGIS Network Analyst extension license
The following capabilities are enabled without an ArcGIS Network Analyst extension license:
- View properties of network datasets.
- View network dataset layers, including any associated traffic feeds.
- View network analysis layers.
- Change properties of network analysis layers.
The capabilities that are unavailable without the ArcGIS Network Analyst extension license are the following:
- Creating, building, and rebuilding network datasets
- Solving network analysis layers
ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Enterprise, and the ArcGIS Network Analyst extension
Network Analyst functionality is also available as an extension in ArcGIS Engine and ArcGIS Enterprise. Separate ArcGIS Network Analyst extension licenses are required for ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Enterprise, and ArcGIS Pro—they aren't interchangeable.
This means you need an ArcGIS Network Analyst extension license specifically designed for ArcGIS Engine to use Network Analyst functionality in ArcGIS Engine. Similarly, you need a separate ArcGIS Network Analyst extension license to use Network Analyst functionality in ArcGIS Enterprise and ArcGIS Pro.
