The ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing for Server product provides the following capabilities.
Publish networks and event layers as a map service
It provides the capability to publish your ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing LRS Networks and registered event layers as a map service. As a map service, your linear referenced data can be shared to the enterprise and/or published to your organizational account at ArcGIS.com. Networks and events can be consumed by any client application that can consume a Pipeline Referencing for Server map service, including existing web, and mobile clients. In addition, web developers can use the Pipeline Referencing for Server Web APIs to develop web and connected mobile applications against your linear referenced data.
Adds the Linear Referencing capability to map services
Pipeline Referencing for Server extends an existing Pipeline Referencing for Server map service with an additional REST service capability for linear referencing. These additional REST services, provided by Pipeline Referencing for Server, support capabilities such as the following:
- Provide LRS-based network and event layer information.
- Translate coordinate locations to routes and measures.
- Translate (Locate) routes and measures to coordinates or polylines.
- Validate route and/or measure values.
- Convert measures from one LRM to another.
