Available with Location Referencing license.
The ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing Server product provides the following capabilities.
Publish networks and event layers as a map service
Pipeline Referencing Server provides the capability to publish your LRS Networks and registered event layers as a map service. As a map service, your linear referenced data can be shared to the enterprise and published to your organizational account at ArcGIS.com. Networks and events can be consumed by any client application that can consume a map service, including existing web, and mobile clients. In addition, web developers can use the Web APIs to develop web and connected mobile applications against your linear referenced data.
Compatibility with desktop solutions
The Pipeline Referencing functionality in ArcGIS Pro requires Location Referencing services available from ArcGIS Enterprise. ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Enterprise must be installed to compatible versions.
The Pipeline Referencing functionality is included in ArcGIS Pro and does not require a separate installation, but requires the Location Referencing license feature.

Adds the linear referencing capability to map services
Pipeline Referencing Server extends an existing map service with an additional REST service capability for linear referencing capabilities such as the following:
- Provide LRS-based network and event layer information.
- Translate coordinate locations to routes and measures.
- Translate (Locate) routes and measures to coordinates or polylines.
- Validate route and/or measure values.
- Convert measures from one LRM to another.
- Multilayer, transactional event editing, with support for overlap retirement and coincident event merging.
It provides online developer help for the REST services exposed by the linear referencing capability.
Pipeline Referencing Server comes packaged with ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing sample web apps that demonstrate the use of exposed REST services. These developer samples demonstrate how a web or connected mobile developer would do the following:
- Visualize networks on a map.
- Visualize events on a map.
- Locate measures on a route.
- Perform spatial and attribute queries for routes.
- Perform spatial, measure, and attribute queries for events.
- Convert routes and measures to coordinates.
- Convert coordinates to routes and measures.
- Convert measures between linear referencing methods (LRMs).
Edit event data on the web using Event Editor
Event Editor is a web app provided by Pipeline Referencing Server that supports editing of event data in a web browser.
