This question already has an answer here:
I have a line feature (polyline with curves) in ArcGIS Desktop, and I want to create a linear representation (straight line) of the feature, furthermore I want to be able to locate events in the linear representation. This is something like I would like:
Making some research I found something similar called "column view" unlucky my PC rebooted an does not saved the history of the browser... so I lost the document. (I have been searching for it again, but I have not been able to find it)
In the petroleum industry they call it "Alignment Sheet", is a representation of the objects that are located over a route but in a straight line. But keep in mind that is not linear referencing. Think in this way: you have a road, with its events, it is a curve, the idea is to straight it and view the event over that line.
