Linear Reference System
Users may organise and manage infrastructure objects by locating them along the Linear Referencing System (LRS) Technology for Transport Networks. Users may then search for objects along the network/LRS. Users may also cut long-stretched objects (from-to) along the network, e.g. for delivery to the field.
“Network and linear location is critical in asset management to locate and overlay the many linear features used to assess condition of roads, track, pipe networks and others.”
