Batch query with a set of points as input

Discussion created by brait on Jul 3, 2011

I'm new to this type of development so forgive me if my question seems trivial.

I need to find information in a layer in the map for a given point. This I can do.

As an example I want to know if a point is on land or in water.

But I have thousands of points where I want to do this and save the result to a text file. A kind of batch job.
What would be the best way to go about this?
Any examples would be great.
Thanks in advance
