I'm thinking through how to set up services for mapping, downloading, and graphing data collected at monitoring stations. If the data is entered into a PostgreSQL database how would GeoEvent processor tie into that, or is there a better setup than using GeoEvent?
I haven't used GeoEvent before, but I was thinking that a connector could be setup to poll the PostgreSQL database at regular intervals, perform any preprocessing that can be done, and then serve out the map services through ArcGIS Server. If that setup works would the map service data be available for a user to select and download (with an option to download as shapefile, csv, or Excel) too? I'm assuming that the services would support anything that data coming from a non-sde would support.
