Create Site Column based on ArcGIS Location field type of ArcGIS SharePoint Webpart

Idea created by gsurange on Feb 8, 2012
    Our department have many sharepoint applications using ESRI location field type as site column. So, it's on many libraries and site collections. We were able to create it using 1.x version of ArcGIS for SharePoint WebParts.
    We are in a process of migrating all our applications from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010. During migration, we found an issue that we are not able to create site column from ESRI location field type.

    This functionality is extensively used on our sharepoint platform and it is very helpful. This functionality will be very helpful to many other customers using 2.x ArcGIS for SharePoint WebParts on SharePoint 2010 platform.
