I am working on a project and I am pretty stuck. I would like to create a route based on directions. That is the easy part. Then do a search for a particular service, Gas Stations, Restaurants, Stores. I want the particular location along my route. My guess would be to create a buffer around my route (based on how far I would be willing to go off my route), and then clip the services that fall within the buffer. The issue with most searches is that when I do the search it gives me a radius search from my location or beginning location. I would like to find services along my route to help me choose the best location for a ce to stop.

I added a script, which is basically the Directions API. I like the way it is formatted with the options on the right. I am open to some ideas if anyone has any.

Thanks for your help.

Jason,

   Do you have a service that would be used to represent the places youe are wanting to search for along your route (i.e Gas Stations, Restaurants, Stores)?

Robert, that is the part I am kind of trying to figure out. When I use the

Directions API for example I can get a few choices. Not sure if I can get a

specific list. Also is the buffer possible after the route is created? Do you

think that this is something that is possible?

Thanks for the help with this,

Jason

Jason,

   Sure you can get the routes geometry and then using the JS API you can buffer that route geometry. The issue would be having a mapservice that represents the desired stops for Gas Stations, etc.

Hmm, ok . Do you have any ideas on how we could accomplish that? Will it be

easier to go through ArcGIS online for something that. Or is there a way to do

the search after we have the buffer?

Jason,

   The only way I am familiar with is to have a map service that is a point feature for your Gas Stations, etc and use the QueryTask in the JS API to get the features of that map service that intersect the buffer.

Ok, that seems like it might work. Would I be able to get the info from the

point that was queried? For instance the address so I could re-input that in

the directions search. Are you able to create something like that? I am not

the strongest in writing Script.

Jason,

   I all boils down to you having a mapservice that represents your POIs (Gas, Food, etc.). If you find that then I might be able to find some time to provide you with some code example.

Would the ESRI query, work as a map service that could do the search?

Jason,

   I am not sure what you are referring to when you say "ESRI query"...
