I have two point layers and want to perform a spatial join on nearest distance.
Normally it is easy with ArcMap. But now I have a restricting condition on the spatial join. The restriction only allows the attributes to be joined if the nearest point is within the same country.
Both point layers have information about the country in their attribute table (e.g., "de" for Germany). So it must be some spatial join like:
Join attribute B to layer A on nearest distance where countryID_Layer A = countryID_Layer B.
Does anybody have an idea how I could solve this?
EDIT: Image I have following attributes: Table1(hotels): h_key, l_iso_a2, geom and in Table2(iata_codes): loc, ctry, geom
EDIT2: I tried to write the SQL-Statement, but it does not work somehow. Can anybody help me with this statement?:
select distinct on (h.h_key) h.h_key, h.l_iso_a2, i.loc, i.ctry, distance from ( select h.h_key, h.l_iso_a2, i.loc, i.ctry as country2, st_distance (h.geom, i.geom) as distance from hotels AS h, iata_codes AS i where h.l_iso_a2 = i.ctry order by h.geom <-> i.geom ) as iata_codes_h_key;
