I am working on a project which requires real time map matching. I am currently using ArcGIS but not sure whether it will work.
Here is what happens with my system:
the cell phones sent GPS fixes every five seconds to my server and I need to do real time map matching to snap the point on to one of the links of the map and store the matched points.
ArcGIS has a 'near' tool for snapping the point to nearest link. However, the input to the tool has to be a shapefile for the points.
I am wondering how I can deal with the real time data I get in ArcGIS. Creating a shape file for each point?
Any other suggestion for accomplish this work?
