I have a point shapefile (with a lot of points) and a line shapefile (which contains just 1 line). I need to calculate the shortest distance from each point to the line as well as the coordinates of each point on the line to which the distances are calculated. I figured out that this can be done with ArcToolbox/Analysis Tools/Proximity/Near. But you need an advanced license for that, I only have Basic.
Is there another way to have the same outcome?
