Dear Readers,
I'm quiet new to the ArcObject... And i need some help/ indication, my main issue is :
I have an external WPF application (a video player exactely), and from that application i wanted to  perform the following action in the current ArcMap :
-From my apllication get the current ArcGis desktop or ArcMap running.
-Send coordinates and display a bitmap at that location.

and frankly i don't know from where i should start, so there are my questions :
Is it possible to access the current running session of arcgis from a third party program?
Is it possible to send the coordinates to arcgis this way?
Or shouold i convert my apllication to an AddIn but how can i perform that, if you have any usefull indications it will be great.
Thanks & Regards,
