Roads and Highways uses a simple feature class to store calibration points for calibrating routes. The Add Point tool on the Location Referencing tab allows you to add calibration points to a route. Roads and Highways automatically calibrates the route it references and applies the calibration event behavior. This tool can also apply downstream recalibration to a route where a calibration point is added.
The following scenario is an example of route calibration with downstream recalibration before and after adding a calibration point:
Step A—The route's existing calibration points and the route before calibration are shown.
Step B—Add a new calibration point with the measure 5 with Recalibrate downstream checked. In this example, 4 is the suggested measure based on the current calibration of the route at that location, but the user changes it to 5.
Step C—When Run is clicked, the new calibration point is added, downstream calibration points are updated, and the route is recalibrated.
The following scenario is an example of route calibration without downstream calibration before and after adding a calibration point:
Step A—The route's existing calibration points and route calibration are shown.
Step B—A new calibration point is added with a user-defined measure of 5. In this example, 4 is the suggested measure based on the existing route calibration, but the user changes it to 5.
Step C—When Run is clicked, the new calibration point is added and the route is recalibrated, but no downstream calibration is added.
Complete these steps to add calibration points to a route:
Add an LRS calibration point layer to the map to begin the editing process. Traditionally versioned networks must be edited through a direct connection to the geodatabase. Branch versioned networks, which include any network configured with a user-generated route ID, must be edited through a feature service.
- Click the Location Referencing tab.
- Click the Add Point button on the Location Referencing tab.
- On the map, click a location on the route to add a calibration point.
The Add Calibration Point pane appears with the Network, Route ID, From Date, To Date, and Measure fields automatically populated with information from the selected route on the map.
- Optionally, change the From Date and To Date fields to specify when the calibration will be applied to the route.
- Optionally, change the value in the Measure field.
- Optionally, check the Recalibrate route downstream check box to recalibrate downstream calibration points along the route.
- Click Run.
The calibration point appears on the map at the selected location.
If a message about acquiring locks or reconciling appears, conflict prevention is enabled.
- Optionally, repeat steps 1 through 7 to add additional calibration points.
