Split a centerline by measure

适用于 Location Referencing 许可。

The Split Centerline By Measure tool is a centerline feature class editing tool available in ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing. This tool is useful if you know the measure value on a route for the location of the split. The tool splits a centerline into two contiguous parts on either side of the measure value of the route.

Pipeline Referencing also supports splitting a centerline by point (at the location clicked on the map) or splitting a multipart centerline into singlepart features.

  1. Add the centerline and network feature class to a map.

    You can also open a map in which the centerline and network feature class are already present.


    The information model expects only one centerline at any given location. Make sure that the centerlines used for your edit do not overlap other centerlines in your LRS.


    Traditionally versioned networks must be edited through a direct connection to the geodatabase. Branch-versioned networks, including any network configured with a user-generated route ID, must be edited through a feature service.

  2. Zoom to the centerline that you want to split.
  3. On the Location Referencing tab, click Split Centerline and then click the By Measure button 按测量分割中心线.
  4. Click any location on the route.

    The route is highlighted in light green and a point appears at the location. The Split Centerline by Measure pane appears. In the following example, the measure value at the location is 82542.093 feet.

  5. In the Split Centerline by Measure pane, change the measure value in the Measure text box to remove the decimal numbers.

    For example, you could change 82542.093 to 82500 feet.

    The point moves to the location of the measure value.

  6. Click Run.

    The centerline is now split and flashes on both sides of the route's measure value.

    If additional fields are modeled on the centerlines, attributes from those fields on the centerline being split will be added to the new centerline resulting from the split.
