Displaying Measured data as straight line

Hi All,


I have several geodatabases that have geometries with Measures on them, i.e. a PolyLine with XYZ & M on each vertex.  These can easy be displayed on a map by their XY coordinate.


However I'd like to be able to "straighten" these into a line to show route event data points at the measures,  but I don't care about the XY location,  sort of like a subway map.


Something like this:



Does anyone have any suggestions of where to start?  I was thinking of maybe a custom layer or custom projection/transformation, to somehow display the M data as the X coordinate, with a fixed Y?  (without creating new features classes)
