Issues Addressed with this Patch


    The main issues addressed with this Patch are:

    • CQ00285549 - Addresses one issue with the Closest Facility solver where the geometry of routes is incorrectly computed when some facilities and incidents are spatially coincident.

      In the case where one incident and one destination are geographically coincident, the Closest Facility solver finds a route between these 2 network locations which has correct total impedance equals to 0. The shape representing the route geometry is incorrect because it corresponds to the route from the same incident to the next facility. Furthermore, all subsequent route geometries are also incorrect. For example, this issue occurs only when the Output Shape Type option is set to True Shape (No Measure).
