A component in a network dataset: an edge, junction, or turn. All elements in a network dataset share the same set of network attributes. Network elements are used to model topological relationships in undirected flow networks such as traffic flow systems. Network elements are generated from point, line, and turn features. When the network dataset is built, point features become junctions, line features become edges, and turn features become turn elements.
