    This helps a lot during the creation of laterals in water/wastewater/gas systems. The laterals are positioned using station values upstream or downstream from end of pipes (see example). It would be nice to digitize the laterals at exact distances (say 2.75 ft from the start/end point of the line). With the current tools, the start/end point of the lateral cannot be precisely located (using route measures is one way, but it is a whole new  game). Though the point can approximately located along straight lines, it is very difficult to do so along curved lines.0EM30000000CkHU
