comment Ways to measure similarities/congruence of tracks (point features) in ArcGIS
Antonio is right, I'm primarily interested in similarities of the paths. What I want to analyse is to which extend the runners' course decisions are random or influenced by topographical features. If the courses were completely random the paths would be all over the place. But they aren't. Even though the runners all ran independently (on different days), some of them seemed to make the same decisions with regard to the course the followed. I want to get a measure that allows it to determine which paths are similar to each other.

Thanks for the reply. I know I'm nearly there not just quite yet. I have merged the polygons, but I can't seem to figure out what the Dissolve tool does. The merged polygon's attribute table only features the individual areas for the original polygons...

comment How to change data type in Excel file before creating feature class?
Sorry for the late reply. Yes, importing to a Personal GDB works as long as the time field is imported as text. Not quite what I had hoped for but at least I can add meaningful labels to my data points now. Thanks to both of you!

comment How to change data type in Excel file before creating feature class?
Well, I've got 15 excel files with around 3-4 worksheets each. It would be quite a nuisance if I'd had to export each worksheet to CSV first. There must be a way to tell Arcatalog to use the correct data type...

That would be a Shapefile. I am using the "Create Feature Class.. > From XY Table" function in ArcCatalog
