I am looking for a way to automate workflow in creating Pedestrian and Vehicle Networks from street network. I put into model builder all restrictions about which streets I want to use and received a feature classes. From those feature classes I can create network datasets using a wizard, but I am looking for a way to add this step to model builder or script in Python. Could you, please advice me how to create network dataset without using a wizard? Thank you!

Mapping Center Answer:

There are no geoprocessing tools to help create a network dataset. There is only one tool to "build" an existing network. So you have to either continue to use the ArcCatalog New Network Dataset wizard or write ArcObjects code to do so in .net or some other programming environment.
