I have no idea if this is even possible. We run a Utility software company and need to know where to put the leak sensors. The sensors are put at either every other house or every two houses depending on the size and material of the water pipe. We have all of the data (size of the pipes, material, etc.) in our GIS server and the meters and water lines are being plotted on a map.
Is it possible for us to be able to create an automated process for this?
Basically, one of our employees would go on our map and be able to click a button on our map and it would automatically plot these points based on the pipe material and the pipe size.
- Can you plot every other address is ESRI?
- Will I need a database of all the addresses in the United States?
- Is there a basemap in ESRI with all of these addresses?
- Or am I making this way harder than it actually is?
