BaseShape shape1 = inputFeatures[parameters["id1"]].GetShape();
BaseShape shape2 = inputFeatures[parameters["id2"]].GetShape();

MultilineShape resultShape = shape1.GetShortestLineTo(shape2, GeographyUnit.Meter);
double distance = shape1.GetDistanceTo(shape2, GeographyUnit.Meter, DistanceUnit.Feet);

Feature shortestLine = new Feature(resultShape);
shortestLine.ColumnValues["Display"] = string.Format("Distance is {0:N2} feet.", distance);

SaveFeatures(accessId, new Feature[] { inputFeatures[parameters["id1"]], inputFeatures[parameters["id2"]], shortestLine });
