I have two shapefiles:
- Polygons of parks in Africa. Each park (polygon) has a row of data regarding it's size, name, date of establishment etc.
- Random points in parks in Africa. Here, I generated 500 random points in each park.Therefore this attribute table has 500 (random points) x 224 parks = 96096 rows.
However, in my random points shapefile there is no indication of which points are in which park. I would like to know how I can get the park's name from the polygon shapefile to match each point ID that is in that park? I see that my random points shapefile has a column called CID which goes from 0 - 224 (Indicating the parks that the points are in), but I did not specify this and I would like park name to be there instead (even though I know it will be repeated 500 times for each matching row).
I am using ArcMap 10.2
