ArcGIS Desktop software supports linear referencing, a method of storing data that adds a new dimension to line features. Linear referencing extends the ability to visualize and analyze linear features such as roads, pipelines, and streams. Instead of relying solely on x,y coordinate geometry, linear referencing is based on relative positions along the line using distance or temporal measures, like miles or hours. For example, an accident that occurred at a specific milepost on a highway could be modeled with linear referencing. This course covers how to generate and display linearly referenced features in a map as well as how to incorporate them into GIS analysis.
