Hi all
I have a problem, I'm building an application where I get the logtitude & latitude of a place by GPS, send it to an Esri GIS database & need to retrieve the asset/s that are in this point (An urban map of assets). I was told by the IT people responsible for the GIS in the organization I'm working with, that such a thing is impossible, I can't retrieve an asset by the Long&Lat.
From my exprience in It systems, I can't see the difficulty & I believe that's possible.
Does any body knows how to do it, I would appreciate a definite answer (either yes or no), & if yes how to do it, I'm total ignorant with the GIS stuff.
Thank you ve much
