Map Service from XML Data Feed

Discussion created by ScheidVineyards1972 on Jul 30, 2012
I'm trying to create a Map Service that when added to my Silverlight Viewer Web App will show the live location of tractors and equipment. The data will come from an XML data feed. The feed is described as an "HTTPS, ???RESTful??? web service" that uses Basic Authentication. The feed is encoded using UTF-8.

I haven't been able to find a way to import the data feed into anything. I've been told that GeoEvent Server will do it, but that doesn't release until Q1 of next year. I was also told that a developer could write something to get the feed into a geodatabase or SQL database. I do have a SQL Server Express 2005 database, and if I could get it into there that would work.

Does anyone have any ideas or could point me in the right direction?
