A location is a place on the earth. Locators know how to transform a spatial description into a shape that can be placed on a map. Examples of locations include addresses, xy coordinates, place names and route.

A route locator knows how to transform a route location into a shape. A route location can represent either a point along a route or a segment along a route between two points.

A RouteMeasureLocator is one type of route locator where a route location's position is determined by the measure values along a given route.

A RouteMeasureLocator object is created via its name object counterpart, RouteMeasureLocatorName.
