I'm new to Python so sorry for this maybe trivial question.
I have 4 lines and 4 points, which belong together. I want to get the closest distance from point 4 to line 4, point 3 to line 3, ... . I want to use a SearchCursor and Geometry methods (distanceTo), no geoprocessing tool like "Near".
The code is used so far is:
import arcpy point_feature = r"C:\Users\name\Documents\ArcGIS\Default.gdb\Gas_points" line_feature = r"C:\Users\name\Documents\ArcGIS\Default.gdb\Gas_lines" pointcursor = arcpy.da.SearchCursor(point_feature, ['SHAPE@']) linecursor = arcpy.da.SearchCursor(line_feature, ['SHAPE@']) for row in pointcursor: geometry = pointcursor print geometry.type for row in linecursor: newgeometry = linecursor print newgeometry.distanceTo(geometry)
The result i get:
point 6.47818694862 67.4681286231 66.0830276147 67.4681286231 point point point
Should be a logical mistake in the for loop, I guess.
