I am using ArcGIS 10.3 for Desktop.

I have stationing information which is placed at irregular distances from the starting point. These have a correlating mileage point. However, they are sometimes 0.1 mile apart and other times 0.5 miles apart. Therefore, although I have created routes from my layer, I cannot determine a way to bring in the stationing data table to create a hatching based on that information. How can I make my hatching irregular following a csv data file?

    I've not had much experience with hatching so I may be wrong but the help file says "Hatching is a type of labeling that is designed to post and label hatch marks or symbols at a regular interval along measured linear features". So I don't think what you are asking is possible. Hatching is for regular intervals. – Hornbydd Aug 31 '16 at 11:25
  • Thanks, I noticed that line in the help file as well. Unfortunately I am still new at this process so I was using the only terminology (in this case, hatching) that I thought was appropriate. – policy_brain Aug 31 '16 at 16:41
