ArcGIS Roads and Highways is a road network management system that lets you efficiently manage route and event data from multiple linear referencing systems (LRS) on a common geographic basis. Easily locate assets and characteristics on or around your road network and expand collaboration by sharing this data across your organisation using a measure-based location method. 

Road network management

ArcGIS Roads and Highways is a linear referencing system solution providing industry-specific functionality to manage and locate roadway data. It allows you to integrate data from multiple linear referencing system networks to get a comprehensive view of your road network and perform dynamic segmentation and other analyses.

Enterprise LRS data management

Maintain linear referenced data from across your enterprise in a single linear referencing system (LRS). ArcGIS Roads and Highways communicates updates to the LRS so you can continue working without waiting for the geographic information system (GIS) to clear its edit queue. Connect GIS data with disparate systems for unified highway data maintenance workflows.

Multiple LRM support

Manage multiple linear referencing methods (LRM) within a single linear referencing system, reducing data redundancy while supporting various measurement and location methods. ArcGIS Roads and Highways allows you to easily translate measures from different LRMs for use in analysis and reporting.

Event behaviour management

Event behaviours are user-configured rules that manage how events should be updated when the route they're linear referenced against changes in location or measure. These rules are automatically applied, reducing the need to manually update your events when the route changes.

2D and 3D support

ArcGIS Roads and Highways is a 3D application, allowing the visualisation and editing of linear referenced data in both 2D and 3D. You can also choose to apply the measures to your linear referencing system in either 2D or 3D depending on how the data is modelled within your organisation.

Time-aware system

Linear referenced data that is maintained using ArcGIS Roads and Highways is time aware. This provides you with representations of your data before and after any editing occurs, allowing for time-based analysis of linear referenced data.

External systems integration

With ArcGIS Roads and Highways, the measurements associated with data in external systems can be kept current and synchronised with the edits made to the linear referencing system. This enables data interoperability and sharing across all business units.
