I have two feature classes.
- Point feature of hand-sampled GPS locations
- Line feature of terrace walls digitized from aerial photograph.
Because of the less than perfect ways I generated these features, I need to allocate each GPS point to the nearest terrace wall from which I sampled it.
I defined the Input as the Point Feature, and the near feture as the terrace lines.
But the process fails to generate results. If it's a Near Table, then it's an empty one, and when I use the Near Tool itself on the point feature, it adds two fields with -1 in them.
When I run the tool on the features in an opposite way, it does generate results, and for every terrace walls gives me the nearest point - obviously, not what I'm looking for.
Any idea why the process fails?
