Event Editor is a web application for adding, selecting, and editing linear referenced event data. Notable features include route searching, attribute set-based route attribution, quality control of events checks, event data query, creating and saving bookmarks, saving and deleting webmaps, and event editing and route redlining.

The Event Editor layout includes a ribbon toolbar, widgets, results grid, and floating windows.

Widgets

After clicking a menu and selecting a widget, the widget opens. Most of the widgets dock on the left side of the page.

After opening the widget, you can expand or contract the widget to a different size that persists across all sessions.

To minimize the widget, click the left-facing arrow. To close the widget, click the x on the top right.

Results grid

After running many widgets (Select Events, QC), a results grid opens containing event results. By default, the results grid opens at the bottom of the page; however, this is configurable. You can directly edit event records in the results grid. The results grid contains four tools that can help you edit event data: Zoom To (selected events), Select All, Save Changes, and Calculate Field.

Pipelines results grid

Similar to widgets, you can expand and contract the results grid to a different size that persists across all sessions.

To minimize the results grid, click the down-facing arrow (similar to widgets).
