I'm very new to GIS, and have been toying with something that intuitively seems simple, but I can't make it work. I have an ArcView license (small municipal government).
I have a parcel polygon shapefile and a building polygon shapefile. I'm trying to copy parcel ID numbers to the building shapefile. The buildings are all wholly contained within the parcels. I cannot seem to find a way to make this work.
Once I know how to do this (which I'm assuming will be easy and obvious once I see it), I will try to do the same for the driveway shapefile, which aren't always completely contained within the parcels.
My end goal is to come up with the area that is neither driveway nor building for about 8000 parcels.
