I have a route-feature class and a point feature class with speed limit signs. In ArcMap I am capable to reference the signs on the route with help of a reference field and using the locate features along a route tool . So now I have the signs referencend on the routes and these referenced signs have a measure-field.

Now I am trying to create a line or route feature class with speed limit information on it but I can not find out how? The goal is that I have route segments that say: on route 1, from 0m to 1000m speed limit is 50kmh, from 1000m to 1337m speed limit is 80kmh and so on... Any help is appreciated!

  • How are you dealing with direction of travel? May 30, 2013 at 14:22
  • I am not. The only "direction" I use use is the values from 0m to Xm. But they have nothing to to with the actual travel direction. Jun 28, 2013 at 6:27

I think you need to look at Make Route Event Layer (Linear Referencing), using an Event Type of LINE.

If you need more help then the other topics to use in searches (and which I've added as tags) are Dynamic Segmentation (even Chainage), and Events.
