G'day all,

I have an example where I have a large number of multilinestrings
representing the seaway track  from one port to another. In order to
interpolate the position of  a vessel (this is historical data) along these
tracks, we used a combination of st_linemerge and st_interpolate.

The multilinestring respects the direction of travel (from the origin to
the destination), so we thought this approach would work.

However, to use st_interpolate, we need linestrings, so we used linemerge
(looks perfect) but the line now goes from the destination to the origin.
(of course, this is not predictable - sometimes it is in the right order).

Is there any way to 'force' the linestring to have the same ordering as the
multi-line string? we are using linestringm, can we take advantage of the M
value?

example:
