I am running cost paths on a data set with 60k points which represent farms. About a third of these points have the exact same coordinate (points can often represent village centers where the farm houses are clustered. The center of town is taken as the GPS point for all of the farms. Each point with the same GPS is from the same village but represents different farms with unique data collected).
When cost path converts each point to raster internally, I believe these "overlapping" farms are lost. I get one third less cost path lines than I should. I can't then relate the cost paths back to the original table of all of the farms.
Does anyone have any workarounds?
