Splitting Events

Split Events

The Split Event tool is used to split a line event into two adjoining events. You are allowed to edit the attributes of the split events prior to committing the split. Upon a successful execution of the tool, the resultant split events get new event IDs and the input event retires.

  4. The LRM to which the event is registered is selected automatically in the parameter, but you can select the LRM using the drop-down list.
  5. Enter a Route ID on which the events to be split are located or use the Select a Route on the Map tool Select a Route on the Map to pick up the route from the map.

    A route will be selected on the map.

  6. Next, use the Select From Measure on the Map tool Select From Measure on the Map to pick a point on an event on the selected route.

    The event will be split into two events on either side of the point. Alternatively, you can enter a measure value using the input box. The event underlying the measure value of the route will be split into two.

  7. The records/attributes of the split event show up in the Split Result area. The Start date defaults to today's date but you can select a different date using the drop-down date picker. The End date is optional.
  8. The split events are displayed in the Split Result table; you can edit the fields in white. The gray fields are uneditable.
  9. Click Save to split the records.
