I have an application coming together using the ArcGIS Server API for Silverlight. The app, currently, takes in two geometry points from the user and passes the geometry to an ArcGIS Elevation server online to get elevation values. Then the SL client sends the data over to an internal ArcGIS Server to do custom slope calculations and linear referencing on a semi-static polyline with a gp service.
What are pro and con arguments to move the UI from silverlight over to desktop application. Perhaps a C# extension/addin that allows the user to select points similar to how they interact in the web map. And documentation or white papers on the subject. This would be strictly an ArcMap centric dev question.
Now it is an internal app. But deployment issues would be a good topic. As well as maintenance and complexity of development. Any others points would be very welcome as well.
I guess this may not be a strict question to get an answer to maybe it needs to be moved?a
