To be used as an event table, a table must contain a route identifier field and route location fields, which are used to find the location of the events along routes.
New event tables can be created in ArcCatalog, where there are tools for creating geodatabase, dBASE, and INFO tables. You can also create new event tables by locating existing point, line, or polygon features on a route. The resultant event table will contain the route and measure information of where the features intersect your routes.
Event tables can also be created by overlaying events, aggregating events, and transforming events from one route reference to another. These specific topics are covered in the next section, Working with route event data.
Over time, you will need to modify event data to keep it accurate and up-to-date. Event tables can be edited in ArcMap.
