Customer would like members of the public to be able to click on linear features - such as a water main - to see details.
I don't believe direct click on linear feature is possible.
I tried setting up a copy of the linear feature and defined it as point. Then added a symbology using geometry math to specify point. displayed as a feature in the public map view. Was able to create a POI based on the feature but the resulting POI would not display iin the public map view. Not sure if thats a WAD or issue.
While the geoemtry math technique would not be ideal - would only have occassional nodes could click on - it might have been a starting point.
Thinking next might play with a view in db that has point repeating along the line - not sure how difficult that will be yet (SQL Server spatial).
Or could use GeoMedia to generate repeating points, but that adds overhead to maintenance processes.
Any other ideas/approaches?

what about building a buffer around the line geometry in either the symbology of the feature or in database and use the resulting area feature to click on.
