00024: Route hatch symbology is not supported

You have a feature class that uses hatching for display of linear referencing information along linear features with measures. Hatch display is not supported for basemap layers or map services.


  • Turn off feature hatching for your linear referencing layers. You can do this by changing the display options for your layers. Follow these steps:
    1. On the layer properties page, click the Hatches tab.
    2. Uncheck the Hatch features in this layer option.
  • An alternative is to remove the map layer.

Hatching is a type of labeling that is designed to post and label hatch marks or symbols at a regular interval along measured linear features. Here is an example of hatching along a highway that shows two measurement systems:

Because hatching can be very involved, computing hatches and labels on the fly can cause map performance to degrade.
