heal.abstract In the present paper the ArcGIS Network Analyst Algorithm is introduced for best routing identification applied in municipal waste collection of large items. The proposed application takes into account all the required parameters for the waste collection of large items so as its desktop users to be able to model realistic network conditions and scenarios. In this case, the simulation consists of scenarios of visiting loading spots in the municipality of Athens, in order to collect large items that couldn't be collected by the standard waste collection trucks, due to size and other prohibitive obstacles. The Network Analyst is used to estimate interrelations between the dynamic factors, like network traffic changes (closed roads due to natural or technical causes, for example, fallen trees, car accidents, etc) in the area under study and to produce optimized solutions. The user is able to define or modify all the required dynamic factors for the creation of an initial scenario, and by modifying these particular parameters, alternative scenarios can be generated leading to several solutions. Finally, the optimal solution is identified by a function that takes into consideration various parameters, for example the shortest distance, road network as well as social and environmental implications. © 2007 ECMS. en
