An overview of the Roadway Characteristics Editor user guide
The Roadway Characteristics Editor is a map-centric web application that supports linear referenced event data editing. This application is included with Esri Roads and Highways for Server.
Features of the Roadway Characteristics Editor
- Route searching—Most roadway characteristic editing workflows are route centric, where the first step of attributing the route is locating the route on the map.
- Attribute set-based route attribution—Define groups of event layers, named attribute sets, to provide attributes across multiple event layers in a single transaction for a given route and to/from measure pair. The event layers can also be stored and referenced in different linear referencing methods (LRMs). The application will take care of route and measure translations across LRMs.
- Run quality-control checks—Run QC checks for a route to detect event data gaps, overlaps, and invalid measures; then use the editing capabilities to correct those errors.
- Event data query and editing—Query for event data by its route association, by ad-hoc queries, by spatial intersecting geometry, or by location proximity. Visualize, browse, and bulk edit the tabular results.
- Route redlining—Communicate required LRS modifications or discrepancies by redlining a route to communicate to the LRS data managers that a route needs to be created, extended, retired, realigned, or reassigned.
Deployment of Roadway Characteristics Editor
Follow these steps to get your organization's event and route data into the Roadway Characteristics Editor:
- Create a map document (MXD) with the desired routes and event layers using ArcGIS and Esri Roads and Highways for Desktop.
- Add the LRS intersection class and other point layers to the map to create events using reference offsets.
- Publish the map document with ArcGIS for Server and enable the Esri Roads and Highways for Server Linear Referencing capability.
- Create a web map that includes the above map service and a basemap.
- Deploy the Roadway Characteristics Editor to a web server and configure it to use the above web map.
Detailed instructions for deployment can be found in the Overview of the Roadway Characteristics Editor deployment guide topic.
