I am working on a Alexa skill where I get the user's location (
Lat, Long) from the device. Since my skill only applies to a specific city (Boston, USA), I am using the ArcGIS
reverse_geocode to determine if that Lat, Long is in Boston, but the input is in the XY format.
I wrote the following method:
from arcgis.gis import GIS from arcgis.geocoding import reverse_geocode from arcgis.geometry import from_geo_coordinate_string gis = GIS() location = [42.3937647, -71.1449038] m_location = reverse_geocode(location) print(m_location) # Error: # Cannot perform query. Invalid query parameters. # Unable to find address for the specified location.
Therefore, I need to convert my lat,long to XY. I found the find_transformation function, but don't know how to use as inputs (the in_sr and out_sr, for instance).
I cannot use packages such as
pyproj, because the team does not approve, and I'm positive that ArcGIS has a function for converting between coordinates
