Display Route Measure Anomalies in ArcGIS Pro

Arcmap has layer properties specific to Route Feature classes (with measures) allowing the layer to support hatching symbology and labeling, as well as ability to show where measures do not increase as described here:

Displaying route measure anomalies—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop 

The idea is to incorporate the same functionality into ArcGIS Pro.


Thanks for submitting this Kyle Gonterwitz‌.  There are a couple of other ideas related to bringing linear referencing functionality into ArcGIS Pro.

Port "Identify Route Locations" and "Set From/To" Linear Referencing Tools from ArcGIS 10.x to ArcGI...

Find - Linear Referencing Tool for ArcGIS Pro

Could you please consider changing this idea's title to "Display Route Measure Anomalies in ArcGIS Pro" ?

This discussion will probably also provide some good context: Is there an 'Identify Route' tool? 

As for hatching, that is currently available in ArcGIS Pro, but done in a way that allows it to work and perform well as a part of services: Draw measured hatches along lines—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop 



good description of the idea, I changed it.  Great info on the hatching capability, I will look at that, thanks.


upon first review of the process to draw measured hatches along lines, that works really well and has a lot of options, it's just buried in there with the many symbol options of pro.  That link was helpful but it could use more screenshots, the terminology used in that link to achieve this is so specific to pro (but was very well worded and I could easily figure it out).  Also, what can be done to keep the hatched labels from drawing upside down?  I set my text angle at 270 to get my hatch labels right-side up.


Pro team may be going in the direction of burial more of the measure stuff into symbology rather than a layer property...  Given the intelligent menu system of pro, I think that a good approach option to pro incorporation may be an intelligent menu that activates when the layer is activated and the layer is recognized as having m values.  From that menu linear reference tool options could be chosen. 


I am surprised to find that this idea hasn't gained any traction. The ability to display route measure anomalies using ArcMap is such an essential user interface (UI) feature that I find myself in disbelief that it remains unavailable in ArcGIS Pro five years after the idea was submitted here.

For any route that is not strictly increasing, ArcMap can show you the exact location where the fix needs to be made, rather than scrolling through thousands of vertices in the edit sketch window to find the problematic locations (like finding needles in a haystack). 

Thank goodness my employer still avails our office with access to ArcMap. Please, Esri, consider this feature within the LRS ribbon of ArcGIS Pro.
