Is there a way I can query the M value along my route where a point touches the line. I'd like to use the field calculator in my Points fc to query the M value where the point intersects the line and populate the field with an M value. My points are M aware.

I've done something slightly similar by querying the beginning and end measure values from a line and applying it to a field in the line's table using !Shape.extent.MMin!.

Rather than manually inputting the measure value where the point and line intersect using the Route Identify tool, I'd like to automate this process if possible.

  • Are you looking for a manual approach, it's not clear what exactly you are looking for? – Hornbydd Feb 21 '17 at 20:45

    Why did you delete your other question? I think it may have been better to edit your original question with updated information rather than deleting it (and the comments/suggestions others had already made) and creating a new question. – Midavalo Feb 21 '17 at 20:45
  • @Midavalo My problem changed slightly and it was easier for me redo than edit. I will edit next time to save the others suggestions. – Tigerwoulds Feb 21 '17 at 20:53

    Sounds like you need only run the Locate Features Along Routes tool which is in the linear referencing toolbox? – Hornbydd Feb 21 '17 at 21:42

Figured it out. Made sure points are snapped to line. Run Locate Routes Along Features tool. Join resulting table to original points feature class based on Input OID.
