I have two almost identical shapefiles (polylines) representing a road network. The only difference is that the original shapefile has lines that have different lengths, while the other shapefile has a set length of 1000 meter.
While creating the equal sections of 1000 meters, the attribute table of the original shapefile with different lengths was lost. This also means that the new shapefile contains more Objects than the original shapefile.
Is there a way to copy the attributes from the original shapefile to the new shapefile? The attributes from the original need to be copied to all the objects that are at the same location in the new shapefile.
The first picture contains the original layer with classification as Major Road (please note, between two intersections there is only 1 object, unlike in the new layer). The second picture contains the new layer without classification and the third one contains the picture when using spatial join in ArcGis.
