Events are registered with ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing in the ALRS Properties dialog box or by right-clicking the LRS Network in the Catalog window.
Events within the geodatabase
In Pipeline Referencing, events are stored as feature classes within the same geodatabase as the ALRS. Pipeline Referencing manages the shape of the event features based on the route, measure, and to and from dates. This provides increased performance in ArcGIS for mapping and spatial query of the event data. When registering an event, you can model the feature class in advance, have Pipeline Referencing create the new feature class for you, or copy the schema from another table or feature class to the new feature class being created. Once an event is registered with Pipeline Referencing, any existing event records can be loaded using the Append Events geoprocessing tool. For more information on registering events, see Registering an event within the ALRS geodatabase.
Once an event is registered, Pipeline Referencing manages the event. When edits made to a route have an impact on event measures via the event measure behavior configuration, the changes are made directly to the event feature class. After performing and saving edits with the Pipeline Referencing editing tools in ArcGIS Pro, the Apply Event Behaviors.
Referent offset events
Pipeline Referencing supports referent offsets being used to manage the location of events. When registering an event within the geodatabase with the ALRS, you specify a route ID and measure columns to inform Pipeline Referencing how to locate the events on the network. If your events also have referent columns configured, you can locate events based on an offset from the location of another entity. In some cases, that entity could be another event, point feature class, or X-Y coordinates. For more information on referent offset events, see Storing referent and offset information for event location.
