I have a layer with street lights on it and they all have unique asset ID numbers assigned to them already. Our data collectors are re-picking up all these street lights again but this time it will have all attribute information we need.
So my question is: Is it possible to transfer that unique ID from the old layer to the new layer? There will be 2 point features that are pretty much the same x,y coordinates. Could it be possible to spatially relate them or something? Im not a GIS expert, just do a little data management and cartography stuff.
Any help would be great, because at this point all I can think of is manually copying and pasting the ID numbers into the new attribute table. That could take me long long time. There's got to be an easier way.
Thanks for looking!
