I have an M-value enabled polyline feature class and from-to M-values of lines. The polyline is already calibrated. Is there any way to create line along the calibrated polylines or get that segment of line using (from-to) M-values in ArcMap?

Look at the help file for the Create Routes tool. If your existing polylines are attributed with FROM and TO fields you can use these to calibrate the polyline and insert M along the polyline in a new FeatureClass. Review the Syntax section of the tool.

  • The line is already calibrated and measured values are extracted from that. Right now I have measured values i.e. from to. Do I need to recalibrate the line?

  • If your line dataset is already calibrated, are you asking how to create lines along these calibrated routes using from and to values? If so look at the make route event tool. If not you need to edit your question and add more detail, may be an image?
