I am a college student using ArcEditor 10.0 for a semester project measuring distance to hospitals from census tract centroids. This is my first time using ArcGIS, and I have no formal training.
Is it possible to calculate distance between two different types of points between two layers?
In one layer I have a shapefile for census tracts and I've calculated the centroids. In the other layer I have geocoded hospital addresses. I would like to calculate distance from each census tract centroid to the nearest hospital.
Is there a tool in ArcToolbox that will do this/could you give a brief overview of the tool?
