I have a set of 560 building points and a set of many thousand points representing each meter of a tunnel that is under construction. I don't (only) need to know the nearest, but the distance between each building (red) and every single tunnel point (in blue):
Because I only have the Basic licence (with 3D analyst + Spatial analyst extensions) I plan to run the Near 3D tool with Input feature = Tunnel points and Near feature = One single building point. The problem is that I have 560 building points and I need to separate or split the point feature class into 560 single feature classes, each representing one building.
Is there an easy way of splitting a feature class with many points into many feature classes containing only one point?
I have started with selecting one point and then exporting it into a new feature class manually, but this will be a lengthy process (and I'll probably need to do it with more than the first 560 points).
I am not well-versed with python or scripting, but am open to such a solution.
