I'm trying to use linear referencing on a set of points of which the corresponding line ID is known.
The points are GPS measurements along a railway. Each measurement contains the ID of the railway that is measured. Since the GPS was not very accurate, most measurements are not placed on the railway but a few meters off, or even closer to another parallel railway. I want to reference the measurements to the railway that is predefined per GPS point, and not to the closest railway or line (which is default when using ArcGIS' Locate Features Along Routes tool).
Any suggestions on how to solve this?
I'm working with ArcMap 10.3.1 (Advanced license available). Preferred solution within ArcGIS, but QGIS is also fine.
