I have forms and reports in an MS Access front-end that reference tables in an Oracle ESRI.ST_GEOMETRY back end. The forms allow users to tabularly navigate through construction project attributes in a more intuitive way than can be done in ArcGIS Desktop. The forms and reports have hyperlinks that open a popup form that contains project details. Among other things, I would like the popups to contain a map of the project.
Sure, I could embed or link to a Google map or Bing map, but this would only show the general location. I would like the map to contain several GIS layers, such as road centerline, road right-of-way, sewers, sidewalks, bridges, etc. This is where an embedded GIS map would work well.
The common link could be the project number in the record in the form, and a project number in a polygon layer in the database.
Is it possible to embed some sort of Esri-based map (desktop, web, or otherwise) into an MS Access report or form? Or as a Plan B, somehow hyperlink to an Esri map?
