Hi Brian,



It has a many to one function.

Regarding performance, that depends on a lot of issues but I would think 
if your limiting your edge table to the roads in the school district 
that you should get reason able performance.

You might want to try running it with 10, 100, 1,000, 15,000 so you have 
some idea of the performance at various numbers of nodes.

you will need to map the locations to the node ids in the network, then 
pass the node ids to the function.

Ask if you need more explicit help.
