CostAttribute QML Type

An attribute used to measure and model impedance on the network, such as travel time (transit time on a street). More...

Detailed Description

Note: You cannot declare or create a component of this type in QML code.

Network analysis often involves the minimization of a cost (also known as impedance) during the calculation of a path (also known as finding the best route). Common examples include finding the fastest route (minimizing travel time) or the shortest route (minimizing distance).

Cost attributes are a property of the underlying network dataset. These attributes are apportionable along an edge; that is, they are divided proportionately along the length of an edge. For example, if travel time is modeled as a cost attribute, traversing half an edge will take half the time as does traversing the whole edge: if the travel time to traverse the edge is 3 minutes, it takes 1.5 minutes to traverse half the edge.
