  1. Open ArcGIS Event Editor and, if prompted, sign in to Portal for ArcGIS or ArcGIS Online.
  2. Click the Review tab.
  3. In the QC group, click Check Events.
    Check Events button

    The Check Events on Route widget appears.

  4. Click the Network drop-down arrow and choose the LRS Network that will serve as a source for selecting the location of the quality control check.

    This can be any LRS Network published as a layer in the Event Editor.

  5. Choose a route using any one of the following options:
    Note:

    If your network is configured to have a route name, the Route Name text box appears; otherwise, the Route ID text box appears. This can be any LRS Network published as a layer in Event Editor.

    • Type a route name or route ID.
    • Click the drop-down arrow, click Choose Routes, click the Select a Route on the Map button Select a Route on the Map, and select the route on the map that will be used to check events.
    • Click the drop-down arrow and click Selected Routes to select the routes that are selected using the route selection method.
    • Click the drip-down arrow and click Highlighted Routes to select only the routes that are highlighted from the route selection set.

    The selected routes are highlighted on the map.

  6. Type a From measure value of the intended start location of the quality control check along the route in the From Measure text box, or use the Select From Measure on the Map tool Select From Measure on the Map to select the start location on the map.

    A green plus appears at the selected location on the map.

    Note:

    The Select From Measure on the Map tool is unavailable if you choose either Selected Routes or Highlighted Routes. In those cases, the From measure defaults to the Start measure of the route.

  7. Enter a To measure value of the intended end location of the quality control check along the route in the To Measure text box, or use the Select To Measure on the Map tool Select To Measure on the Map to select the end location from the map.

    If you do not enter the From and To measure values, the tool runs with the Start and End measure values of the route.

    A red cross symbol appears at the selected location on the map.

    Note:

    The Select To Measure on the Map tool is unavailable if you choose either Selected Routes or Highlighted Routes. In those cases, the To measure defaults to the End measure of the route.

  8. Choose an option for validating events.
    • Check all event layers in the map.
    • Choose all the events present in a particular attribute set. For more information on how to create an attribute set containing multiple events, see Configuring attribute sets.
    • Choose a specific event layer using the drop-down arrow.

    • Detect Gaps
    • Detect Overlaps
