I have a local shape file. I wish to find what features are at a nominated point. It would also be nice, but not mandatory, if I had a search radius as well. I thought this was going to be easy, as I've successfully mastered a QueryAsync, but after hours of Googling I'm more confused than ever.

I DON'T want to use a web service (I already know how to do that) for performance reasons, it has to be the local shapefile.

Can someone point me to an example of what should be a straightforward task, but so far I'm baffled.

Marc,

What do you mean by

I wish to find what features are at a nominated point.

What is it that you are exactly trying to search?

I wish to search a shapefile and get a list of all shapes (polygons) at a nominated lat/long. I know how to do this using a WMS server, but I'm struggling to work out how to do it with a local shapefile. Using VB.NET, but an example in any language, even pseudo code, would be much appreciated.
