I have a model that iterates through a folder of field boundaries (polygons) and produces an intersect against a shapefile of points. The output is then a point shapefile for each boundary. Note: There are not points in every field boundary. My goal is to get an output of points ONLY if the points ALSO are in a field boundary. It works, except I get a set of points that have empty values for field boundaries that do not have point in them. How can I eliminate these empty point features?
To get an output of points ONLY if the points ALSO are in a field boundary. You can use (Select by location) instead of Intersect tool
Your ModelBuilder will be somethink like this (I change it depends on a sample data)
If Points will be the selected feature, polygons are the input feature (Then use WITHIN)
If Polygons will be the selected feature, points are the input feature (Then use COMPLETELY CONTAIN)
Result: Polygons contain points
