I have a image from a field, where I converted the plants to polygons, and then I found the centroid of those polygons (attached image). The numbers displaying on the image are the FID numbers.
I am looking for a way to either create new field on my attribute table showing the ID on the same order showing on the image below or to create a new ID field for each point (starting on the east side and moving to the west, for example).
I tried to sort the data set (around 35,000 points) by X and Y, but I does not work for me, and I assuming that is because I the points are just few inches apart.
My final goal is to measure the distance between each point (not the near distance), such as between 59-60, 60-50, 50-51, 51-33, and so on. Looking around on posts posted on this website, it seems that easier solution for my distance question is calculating them in Excel.
In order to do that I need to have the points in order, so I can calculate the distance to the next point.
I am very familiar with ArcGIS but I am not familiar with Python coding, but I can give a try if I need to.
