The Roadway Characteristics Editor supports changing the time view of the map for editing and selecting event data. This capability makes it possible to add and edit events on historical and future versions of LRS routes, using the geometries and measures of those routes for the time period being analyzed. It also makes it possible to visualize those time views of routes and associated events, intersections, and calibration points on the map.
Use the View Date drop-down menu on the mapping toolbar to select a temporal view date (TVD) in which to view and edit events. Temporality is supported for all internal Roads and Highways events, network layers, intersections, and calibration points. To learn more about temporality in Esri Roads and Highways, see Time-aware LRS.
