geoprocessing against Esri Streets Basemap allowed?

Discussion created by gnanicys on Jun 22, 2012
Is there a tool that can be consumed through REST services that will allow you to query the streets used in Esri's basemaps that intersect a polygon area from your own layers? Since I"m already using the Esri Streetmap as a baselayer it just seems to make sense to me if I could somehow highlight the streets that intersect a given polygon.
