ok, i have given this the old college try but have reached a road block that I cannot seem to get past.

I have written the following code (added below as well as attached to this post) and am able to properly execute the QueryTask (as per the console output), but what I haven't been able to figure out is how to take the results, create a new layer from those results, and then add that layer to the map (i.e. a layer showing each point as a pin on the map). Any guidance, help, etc. is immensely appreciated.

Hi there, 

Results are not displayed in the view because the spatialReference of your FeatureService does not match the spatialReference of the view. So you need to set the outSpatialReference of the query to match the view's spatialReference as shown below. 

query.where = "mci_category = 'Shooting'"; 
query.outSpatialReference = view.spatialReference;

Here your application updated and the results are displayed.

Thanks for the response John. I took a look at that url and was able to reduce it to the main parts that I need, but I still find myself not being able to add the results to the map. Here is my version of the code from the url you provided:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1,maximum-scale=1,user-scalable=no">

    html,
    body,
    #viewDiv {
      height: 100%;
      width: 100%;
      margin: 0;
      padding: 0;
    }

    #infoDiv {
      background-color: white;
      color: black;
      padding: 6px;
      width: 400px;
    }

    #results {
      font-weight: bolder;
    }
  </style>

  <script>
    require([
        "esri/Map",
        "esri/views/MapView",

      function(
        Map, MapView,
        FeatureLayer,
        GraphicsLayer,

        on, dom, domConstruct
      ) {

        var occsUrl =
          "https://services.arcgis.com/S9th0jAJ7bqgIRjw/ArcGIS/rest/services/YTD_Crime/FeatureServer/0";


        var queryOccs = dom.byId("query-occs");

 

        // occurrences
        var occsLayer = new FeatureLayer({
          url: occsUrl,
          outFields: ["*"],
          visible: false
        });

        // GraphicsLayer for displaying results
        var resultsLayer = new GraphicsLayer();

        var map = new Map({
          basemap: "dark-gray",
          //layers: [wellsLayer, quakesLayer, resultsLayer]
          layers: [resultsLayer]
        });

        var view = new MapView({
          container: "viewDiv",
          map: map,
    zoom: 10,
    center: [-79.3832, 43.6532]
        });
        view.ui.add("infoDiv", "top-right");




       on(queryOccs, "click", function() {
          queryOccurrences()
            .then(displayResults);
        });

        function queryOccurrences() {
          var query = occsLayer.createQuery();
        //   query.returnGeometry = true;
  //query.outFields = ["*"];
         query.where = "mci_category = 'Shooting'"; 
         // query.geometry = wellBuffer;
        //  query.spatialRelationship = "intersects";

          return occsLayer.queryFeatures(query);
        }

        // display the query results in the
        // view and print the number of results to the DOM
        function displayResults(results) {

          resultsLayer.removeAll();
          var features = results.features.map(function(graphic) {
            graphic.symbol = {
              type: "simple-marker", // autocasts as new SimpleMarkerSymbol()
              style: "diamond",
              size: 6.5,
              color: "darkorange"
            };
            return graphic;
          });
          var numOccs = features.length;
          dom.byId("results").innerHTML = numOccs + " occurrences found";
          resultsLayer.addMany(features);
        }

      });
  </script>

</head>

<body>
  <div id="viewDiv"></div>
  <div id="infoDiv">
    
    <button id="query-occs">Query Occurrences</button>
    <br>
    <div id="results"></div>
  </div>
</body>

</html>

Any further insight is greatly appreciated. I will try and add the above code as a file to the original post

Do you have a codepen (or something similar) so we can actually see what might be going on?

Hi there, 

Results are not displayed in the view because the spatialReference of your FeatureService does not match the spatialReference of the view. So you need to set the outSpatialReference of the query to match the view's spatialReference as shown below. 

query.where = "mci_category = 'Shooting'"; 
query.outSpatialReference = view.spatialReference;

Here your application updated and the results are displayed.
