Reverse geocoding and POI

Discussion created by mjd430 on Nov 13, 2013

I recently inherited a mobile application that uses a python script to reverse geocode using Google api calls.  I need to change it to use ESRI calls.  It currently reverse geocodes using the lat/long of the phone and then returns a list of car rental places within a given radius.  Is there any ESRI service that does that?  I have the service that does the reverse geocoding, but I was looking for a way to use the lat/long to get nearby POI's.  The only other thing I can think of is doing the reverse geocode to get the closest address, and then geocode that address to get a list of nearby POI's.

I'm extremely new to this.  I've done a lot of searching in the forums but couldn't find something close to what I am looking for.

Thanks in advance!
