I should calculate the short distance between points and polygons of the same type.
I have more than 2000 points of 60 different types. And shapefile with 60 polygons of the different species.
The Tool "Near" in ArcGIS Desktop, should work, but you cannot assign to the Input and Near Features "a common field", in order to automatically distinguish which type of polygon corresponds to each point type.
Is there any method in ArcGIS Desktop to deal with it?
