Tutorial and help on network-related tasks?

May 20, 2014 at 6:00 PM
Is there any tutorial or documentation available that could help a DotSpatial-beginner get started with network analysis? In my case for example I have a shape file with forest roads. There are several thing I would like to do, such as:
  1. Fix the topology
  2. Identify edges of line segments, i.e start and end points.
  3. Merge adjacent short line segments into longer ones, based on attribute values (road categories). (try with LineMerger)
  4. Calculate alternative routes from forest areas to main roads.
I understand that the API is a reference for those who already know what libraries and classes to use.
