I'd like to ask for your help for the following problem. I would like to find the distance for each points from the nearest border, represented by the polyline feature here.

I was thinking about using the Near Tool but when I use the latter with the unique polyline of borders as input feature and the points as nearest feature, I get an error 999999.

    That would be the tool of choice, so there is something odd about your data, are they in the same coordinate system?

  • First time I've ever heard of the Near tool. I've always accomplished this using a spatial join with the option to add a distance field to the nearest feature. Very cool, I'll keep that in mind. Jul 15, 2019 at 21:46
