Linear Referencing System (LRS) Branch

The Linear Referencing System (LRS) is the visual representation of the California state highway system as described in the Caltrans Transportation System Network (TSN). The LRS is used to map postmile events. The LRS Branch is also developing the capability to map events along the “off-system” (local roads). This capability is being developed in response to a Federal Highway Administration mandate to create an All Roads Network of Linear Referenced Data (ARNOLD). LRS branch staff are tasked with maintaining and calibrating the LRS database and responding to requests for postmile event data.
