Deleting events (Production Mapping)


At version 10.2.1, linear referencing functionality is deprecated. Tools associated with linear referencing in Production Mapping can still be found in the Customize dialog box, but the Production Linear Referencing toolbar is no longer available. At the next major release of Production Mapping, this functionality will not be available.

It is recommended that you use Esri Roads and Highways to maintain your linear referencing information.

As events on routes change, it is possible to delete those that may not be applicable any longer. For instance, a mile marker sign could be removed from a highway or a construction project could be completed, and events could be removed for both. The Delete Route Events tool allows you to select events in the map and delete them. Deleting the event removes its record from the corresponding table.

When you delete route events, you can select events that are on different routes; you are not restricted to working with events that fall on the same route.

  1. Start ArcMap.
  2. Load event layers in the table of contents.
  3. On the main menu, click Customize > Toolbars > Production Editing.
  4. Add the necessary tools by doing the following:
    1. Click Customize > Customize Mode on the main menu.

      The Customize dialog box appears.

    2. Click the Commands tab.
    3. In the Categories list, click Production Editing.
    4. Click and drag the Delete Route Events button Delete Route Events to a toolbar.
    5. Click and drag the Select Route Events button Select Route Events Tool to a toolbar.
    6. Click Close.
  5. Click the Production Start Editing button Production Start Editing on the Production Editing toolbar.

    The Manage Features and Create Attributes, Update Attributes, or Metadata Attributes windows automatically appear when you start an edit session using the Production Start Editing tool.


    If the Create Attributes, Update Attributes, or Metadata Attributes window does not appear when you start an edit session, click the Show/Hide Attributes button Show/Hide Attributes on the Manage Features window.

  6. Click the Select Route Events tool Select Route Events Tool.
  7. Select the events you want to delete in the map.
  8. Click the Delete Route Events button Delete Route Events.

The selected events are removed from the map, and the associated records are deleted from the table.
