Time to Move Beyond Spatial Search: COGO for Silverlight

find x
Let’s move beyond search.

At the UC, I recall ESRI stating that Silveright is only intended for “lightweight” editing.

After looking at Kirill Osenkov’s Live Geometry overview video, it sure seems feasible to write a silverlight COGO editing tool, leveraging his source code on codeplex.

While it likely wouldn’t be cost effective to do everything the ArcGIS Survey Analyst does, I suspect applying an 80/20 rule to the requirements would justify development costs. With web-based cogo editing tools, things like parcel databases could be more readily moved to the cloud.
