Searching for addresses and places

Some event editing workflows are associated with an address, and the Find Address tool in the Event Editor helps to explore the LRS Network. You can search for an address and zoom to its spatial location.

The Find Address tool uses the ArcGIS Online single-line geocoder. You can use another geocoder as long as it is single line. For more information of configuring the geocoder, see Configuring the Event Editor web application.

  1. Open Event Editor and, if prompted, sign in to Portal for ArcGIS or ArcGIS Online.
  2. Click the Map tab.
  3. In the Find group, click the Find Route button and click Find Address.
    Select Find Address in Roadway Characteristics Editor

    The address input does not need to be exact.

  5. Press the Enter key.

    The results of the search operation are populated in the Search Results dialog box below, along with information about the total number of result pages available.
