I have developed a Flex app that incorporates a number of geo-processing functions. The Base Layer of this app is the standard ESRI World Imagery in Web Mercator coordinate space.
One of these geo-processing functions is a glorified buffer service that can (and often) gets run in or near the polar regions. The graphics in these locations run-off the map (see attached image)
So, I have 2 questions about dealing with this situation:
- Is there some way to confine the graphics layer to the map surface, just like ArcMap does?
- Is there an algorithm I could use (client side) to draw the graphics like they would fall on an actual globe?
