I have two point feature classes - one is the original data and one is the data after editing. I want to know how far each of the points moved in the editing process. How do I compare all of the points in the new data to the points in the old data that have the same ID# and display the distance between them? Also I have the standard license, so I don't have access to the Near or Generate Near Table tools.
From a non scripting perspective, it would be fairly straightforward to do the following:
- Add two fields to each feature class: X1, Y1, X2, Y2
- Calculate Geometry to populate the fields with the coordinates
- Join the two feature classes by common ID#
- Add a 4th field, DIST
- Field calculator with Python
DIST = math.hypot(!X1!-!X2!, !Y1!-!Y2!)
