Hello all,

 

I want to establish a live connection between my server (has ArcGIS desktop, ArcGIS Server, Tracking Analyst Extension) and other devices that can determine location like data collectors in the field (using GPS devices with ArcPad) or taxi-drivers using their smartphones, so I can view their current location on a map on my machine. How can I do this?

 

Thanks a lot

 

Hani

First, you will want to make sure that you have the ArcGIS GeoEvent Processor installed.  If you don't, I would recommend contacting your Account Manager.  They should be able to provide your with an evaluation copy.  Once you have it installed, I would recommend starting with the following tutorial:

Hi Hani,

You will want to take a look at GeoEvent Process Extension for Server:

Thanks a lot Jake,

You are right! It seems that Geoevent Processor Extension is the most powerful engine to handle this process, but I cannot start with it, I referred to tutorials in this link http://www.arcgis.com/home/group.html?owner=GeoEventTeam&title=ArcGIS%20GeoEvent%20Processor&sortFie..., but I did not understand the workflow or the concept of the process and how to make it work. Could you please elaborate a bit more regarding this issue?
