I have a point layer and a polygon layer (both containing hundreds of records) and I want to know how far those points are from a nearest polygon feature,
I've used the Near tool and it returns two columns, NEAR_FID (identifies which polygon feature is the nearest) and NEAR_DIST (distance between a point and the nearest polygon feature). However, I would like to use a different field as the identifying field to show which polygon feature is the nearest (my own ID field instead of ArcGIS's automatic FID field).
Point layer: FID ID 0 2 1 7 2 10 3 213 4 476
Does anyone know if this is possible, and if yes, how?
