I am trying to join points to polygons. To be more precise I have a dataset with points associated with a particular political event. Each point comes with latitude and longitude and other information. And I have a shapefile that has polygons that have regional data information at the Nuts1 level.
I want each of the points to be given the NUTS code in which it belongs to based on latitude and longitude.
I do spatial join on ArcGIS joining points to polygons. I have the same projection in both files. But when the join is completed the data from the polygons do not appear in the joint file. I have the corresponding columns, e.g., Nuts code, or population of this NUTS but all info comes with 0's.
Any suggestions why this happens and how can I fix it?
