I want to create Thiessen Polygons based on a given set of data. However I cant find a related function in the developer resources. Also searching for this only leads me to topics related to ArcGIS for Desktop and not the .NET SDK.

It seems the recommended approach is to call the existing geo-processing tool Create Thiessen Polygons

Are you refering to the ArcGIS for Desktop application ? Because What I am looking for is a method in the .NET SDK for Windows Presentation Foundation. I cant find a "Create Thiessen Polygons" method in the API(ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET - Windows Desktop API Reference | ArcGIS for Developers )

You are correct I was suggesting .Net in the desktop environment. I have not used Runtime SDK .Net but this page seems to suggest you can call geo-processing tools? I have never tried to create a local geoprocessing package (.gpk) so could not tell you what the pitfalls are, if any?

Hi thanks for the link. But I dont understand how that would work. Maybe I should explain a bit what I am planning to do. I have a certain set of coordinates. Lets say 5 locations defined by GPS coordinates. I want to create thiessen polygons using these 5 points so that the area contained by the locations forms the thiessen polygons. If i read your link correctly I have to either use their web service for this or download a geoprocessing packe and use that locally. The application I am trying to implement should ideally work without an internet connection aswell. Now is the question though what kind of geoprocessing package do I need and where do I get it.
