  4. Click the Layer drop-down arrow and choose an event layer.

    This is the event layer from which you will select events.

    Additionally, you can navigate the list of layers by keystroke. For example, press S key in the drop-down menu to jump to the first layer in your list that begins with the letter s.

  5. The network associated with the event is selected automatically, but you can choose another network using the Network drop-down list.
  6. Provide a route ID on which the events are located.

    You can also click the Select a Route on the Map button Select a Route on the Map to choose the route on the map.

    The selection can be constrained to events that intersect a specified source and target measure on a route by entering these values.

  8. Optionally provide the target measure value of the route in the To Measure text box.

    In cases where the source and target route measures are not provided, those events associated with the selected route will be highlighted.

    • Those events within the source and target measures of the given routes will be highlighted on the map.
    • The results are also shown in a tabular format where the event records can be edited. For more information, see Editing events in the selection table.
