Add XY events and other tools should support Z and M when creating features

    Tabular data from a GPS has more than lat and long, so it would be great if the Z and M values could be loaded at the same time. The previous samples tools did allow for these point options.

     

    The new tool to create polylines from points has to have the Z and M values in the points (not just attributes) to be able to generate a 3D line or a linear reference route. But the XY events does not load them.

     

    I was able to modify this script to use the Z and M values to build a route system many times faster than using calibrate routes. Maybe this tool should also have the option to load Z and M from attributes as well. After all who creates points with measures?
