I am using ArcMap 10.6.1 and I am currently trying to add information to a GPS coordinate. This coordinate (red) lies within a shape from a shapefile, and the shapefile as some attributes (yellow box). I want to match these attribute to the GPS file (blue arrow).

I tried to illustrate this with the picture bellow and would be very glad if someone could help me with this.

If you right click your layer in the table of contents, you can choose to Join data by spatial location. Alternatively, you can use the Spatial Join tool.
