I have hurricane tracks (Lines) and Florida county boundary (polygon) and I want to extract only those hurricane tracks that intersect Florida.
In ArcMap 10.0 I used Spatial Join (from Analysis/Overlay) to join the hurricane tracks and Florida polygon map. This created a new shp file of only those tracks that intersected Florida. Importantly it kept the entire length of each of the hurricane track lines that intersected Florida.
I have tried repeating this in ArcMap 10.1 using Spatial Join and while it seems to intersect the hurricane tracks with Florida okay - the new shp file does not have the entire length for each of the hurricane tracks - only short bits of lines outside the Florida polygon boundary.
Can anyone provide guidance on why this may be the case - it is critical for this exercise to extract the those hurricane tracks intersecting Florida polygon but we need the entire length of each of the tracks for each of these hurricanes.
