Create Point Geometry

Converts a specified latitude/longitude location to a point geometry.

Table 1. Create Point Geometry Options
Option Name Description
Coordinate system

This field specifies the coordinate system to use for the point geometry.

To change the default coordinate system, clear the default value then start typing the name of a coordinate system or an EPSG code to see a drop-down list of systems that begin with or contain those characters (the list appears after you have entered three alphanumeric characters). You can also click the browse button to open the Select Coordinate System dialog and select one from the list. Regardless of which coordinate system you select, the descriptive name will appear in the field and the respective EPSG code is saved for the stage.

For more information on EPSG codes, see To retrieve a list of supported codespaces for EPSG, you can submit the SOAP request List Supported CoordSys by Code Space from the Geometry Service Demo page at http://<server>:<port>/Spatial/GeometryService/DemoPage.html.

Longitude field The field containing the longitude of the location to convert to a point geometry (input data type of double).
Latitude field The field containing the latitude of the location to convert to a point geometry (input data type of double).
Geometry field The name of the field that you want to contain the point geometry returned by Spatial Calculator.
