An overview of the Location Referencing toolbox

The Location Referencing toolbox provides essential tools for the configuration and management of the LRS.


Append Events

Appends event records from a table, layer, or feature class to an existing ArcGIS Location Referencing event feature class.

Append Routes

Appends routes from an input polyline into an LRS Network.

Apply Event Behaviors

Updates the event locations for all event feature classes registered with the input network based on the route edit performed.

Calculate Intersecting Route Measures

Creates a table of all the routes and measures at each intersection location.

Calculate Route Concurrencies

Calculates and reports concurrent route sections in an LRS Network.

Delete Routes

Deletes routes and associated data elements from the LRS Network.

Derive Event Measures

Populates and updates the DerivedRouteID field and measure values on point and line events with those fields configured and enabled.

Generate Calibration Points

Generates calibration points for any route shape provided, including complex shapes such as self-closing, self-intersecting, and branched routes.

Generate Events

Regenerates shapes for event features registered with an LRS Network.

Generate Intersections

Generates new intersections and updates existing intersections.

Generate Routes

Re-creates shapes and applies calibration changes for route features in an LRS Network.

Overlay Events

Overlays one or more linear event feature layers onto a target network and outputs a feature class or table that represents the dynamic segmentation of the inputs.

Remove Overlapping Centerlines

Removes overlapping centerline sections to ensure that there is one common centerline when centerline geometry overlaps.

Reverse Line Orders

Reverses the line order for all the routes in a line.

Translate Event Measures

Translates the measures (m-values) of a point or line event layer from one linear referencing method (LRM) to another.

Update Measures From LRS

Populates or updates the measures and route ID on Utility Network (UN) features such as pipes, devices, and junctions or on features in feature classes that are not UN or LRS feature classes.

Tools in the Location Referencing toolbox



The Configuration toolset contains tools for creating and modifying an LRS, LRS Networks, and LRS events, as well as configure a utility network for use with an LRS.
