ET GeoWizards - Geoprocessing Tools

ET GeoWizards Linear Referencing

Linear Referencing (or Dynamic Segmentation) is a very important GIS feature. In many cases (road, river management systems etc.) the data is not represented with X & Y coordinate pairs, but rather in one dimensional linear referencing system. ArcGIS has a comprehensive set of tools for creating, displaying and analyzing such data. Most of these tools however are available only to the users with ArcEditor or ArcInfo licenses.
Note: In ArcGIS 9.1 the standard linear referencing functionality was made available for the users with ArcView licenses

ET GeoWizards 9.3 introduces a new set of functions that enables the ArcView license holders to perform tasks standard only in the top licensing options of ArcGIS

Functions Available:

Since the ET GeoWizards functions work in a very similar fashion to the standard tools we strongly recommend our users to read the "Linear Referencing in ArcGIS" book , provided by ESRI on the ArcGIS instillation media in pdf format.  The book gives a good overview of the Linear Referencing and discusses in detail the options available.
