let's say i have a table that contains distances and angles from known point, and i want to extract the exact coordinates of the maximum distance to the associated angle of the same distance, how to do this in a GeoProcessing server?

Sample data or table?  It would help to see what you have.

And more importantly, are you talking planar coordinates or geographic?

It is relatively easy to calculate the point coordinates given a distance and bearing/azimuth/angle from a start point.

Once that is accomplished then your distance filter can be applied to return the appropriate angle.

Thank you

It's a table of a geographic coordinates, and sorry for not mentioning it

before, i want to run this process as an online service.

as i want to send GPS information from mobile phone to GeoProcessing server

for further processes

Thank you

So more levels of complication than anticipated....

I will flag Robert Scheitlin, GISP‌ to better redirect this question to a more appropriate location

Yeah.. i thought it would be easier but turned a bit complicated. As i want

to preform the same process to retrive a point from different distances and

angles assigned to a set of points!!

Anyways thank you, i do value your input and yor extended help
