EditVertices - Scale when geometry is moved

Discussion created by schinks on Jun 4, 2012
Hi,

My team is working on a requirement to use the EditVertices functionality to allow users to move graphics.  The move functionality works great except for the fact that the length\area of the resulting geometry does not match the length\area before the move.  For example, we created a polygon based on the boundaries of a football field in south Florida and calculated the area to be approx 1.1 acres.  We then used the EditVertices task to move the polygon to northern Alaska.  We then recalculated the area and it was approximately 0.46 acres.  So the question is, how can we move the polygon and then "update" the geometry to reflect the correct size?  Is there a simple way to do this through the API?

Thanks,
Cory
