I was talking to a utility the other day about hydrants and sharing the location of out of service hydrants. The problem they had was that the hydrants had really bad location descriptions. They have coordinates, points, but the peopling wanting the data just want to see a list of the hydrants and information about where they are located. I thought about this for a while and it dawned on me, what a great use of reverse geocoding. You can easily reverse geocode all the hydrants and apply the addresses found to the location description field. If you need to apply location descriptions, give it a shot. Here is a link to a function to batch reverse geocode. Would I think would be cool if you could change this function so it would not only get an address, but if the hydrant was within a certain distance from an intersection, it would use the intersection not the address information for the description field. Maybe this is something ArcGIS Team water can work on. Let us know if you think this would help you.
