I will soon have access to two Trimble Juno 3b's which will both have ArcPad 10. I have done some practice with one Juno 3b and I am very confident with my ability to use them. All I need to know is that if I have the same type of shapefiles, in this case points, and load them into each on of the Trimble Juno's, can I combine them?
I plan to hand one to another person and use the other myself to collect points on different areas of a field. Can I run some sort of tool or even a Python script in ArcMap 10.2.2 to combine both shapefiles so that it creates a single shapefile with the same attributes and spatial extent? I will need them to be combined so that I can use them all in Kriging interpolation.
I believe the union tool is a possibility, but can it be used with points collected in this manner?
