In addition to the display and query of routes and events, ArcMap is the application for creating and editing route features in your spatial database. ArcMap has tools for editing routes that are stored in shapefiles or geodatabase feature classes. Some of these tools are available on the Route Editing toolbar. The others are available within the ArcMap editing environment.
When editing routes, it is important to remember that you are simply editing linear features. The one thing that differentiates the editing of routes from other linear features is the presence of measure values stored with the feature vertices. Hence, the editing of route features can be thought of as two distinct processes. The first is the editing of the route's geometry; the second is the editing of the route's measures.
Route editing assumes that you already have a good understanding of how to edit linear features in ArcMap. To learn more, see What is editing?
