The INetworkWorkspace interface is used for creating and opening a logical network that does not have a corresponding geometric network.  This may be necessary to model relationships that do not have a spatial representation.  To create a geometric network from existing feature classes use the INetworkLoader interface on the NetworkLoader object.
