I am trying to fully understand the genius that is ArcGIS.
I want to develop a piece of software that uses the engine. This application needs to import user data (GeoTIFF, etc) and allow users to put points and polygons on a map. I would think this would be VERY straightforward.
I am unable to find sufficient detail on how to begin this process and was hoping someone here could help me.
There are APIs, there is the ArcEngine, there is ArcObjects, also SDKS. I don't know which I need to develop my application. I would love to make a Windows Form application in C#.
What would I need? ArcEngine? I am working on computers that have ArcGIS desktop installed. How can I know what else is installed (Engine, Objects, etc...)? How can I get ArcEngine if that is what I need?
