This locates the nearest location from P.
It returns this information:
•Side of the link (-1: Left or +1: Right)
•Coordinates of location on link
A typical use is converting large amounts of GPS coordinates into network locations. An example of performance is:
A street network with 200,000 links, latitude/longitude coordinates: 2000 calcs per sec (using an AMD A6-5400K)
Larger street networks makes it slightly slower, while using projected coordinates makes it faster.
Setting MaxVerticesPerCell at a lower value than default can also make it slightly faster.
