Hi there, I'm wondering if anyone has a suggestion for a tool or method that would be an efficient solution for my need.
I need to be able to automatically download a shapefile from the usgs website when an earthquake (event) over magnitude 5 occurs in California.
The shapefile contains polygons of shaking intensity bands which will be fed into an internal workflow to perform further analysis.
I believe there are a few ways that this can be achieved (eg. custom python script and/or SSIS). My hope is there is a tool available that I'm not aware of
There is an rss feed from USGS which could be the trigger. I have looked at ESRI GeoEvent processor but it doesn't have the ability to download that I can find.
I'm thinking of using SSIS to receive the rss data to an sql server table which can be searched for the region and magnitude but then I need a way to go to the event url and download a zipfile automatically.
I appreciate any advice or experience others may have with similar projects.
