ArcGIS Business Analyst Desktop Historical Traffic Settings Patch

Published: December 6, 2017


Installing this patch will enable the ‘Time of Day’ parameter for selection when Drive Time Algorithm is set to ‘ArcGIS Online API.’ This parameter can be found within the  ‘Drive Time’ tab of Business Analyst ‘Preferences.’

If this parameter is employed, the output polygon will correctly vary in shape and size, as the ‘Time of Day’ parameter affects the underlying distance traveled.

This patch is cumulative of previous patches and becomes obsolete at the 10.6 release.

We recommend all Business Analyst Desktop 10.5 and 10.5.1 customers download and install this patch to ensure the highest quality experience.

We recommend that you install this patch to fix a Drive Time 'Preferences' parameter issue, which occurs only when online data is in use for Business Analyst Desktop 10.5 and 10.5.1. It deals specifically with the issues listed below under Issues Addressed with this Patch.
