Add Station and Offset to a point

I currently have a drawing with a road alignment and stationing.  Is there a way to automatically station and offset a point that is not on the alignment line?  


For instance, our alignment line is the centerline of the road.  I need a station and offset of the new right of way line points at different places in the drawing.  I want to use the alignment stationing to have it automatically create the station and offset at the point I choose.

I don't understand very well. Do you have a polyline next to the aligment as rigth of way? and do you want to put the station and offset for each polyline point?. Is it correct?

Try Create Points > Alignments > Station/Offset; you'll then need to choose thealignment from which you're offsetting, then enter the station along the alignment and the offset distance.

That option will create cogo points.  Is that what you want?


I thought you just wanted a simple label of the station & offset.  If so, go to Annotate > Add Labels >

Feature: Alignment

Label type: Station Offset - Fixed Point


These labels display the station & offset from the alignment and will dynamically update if the alignment is edited or the label is moved.

Credit where credit is due! Give kudos or accept as solution whenever you can.

I found the answer.  


Select the alignment - in the Alignment Tab select Add Labels - Station and offset.
