GIS is not my full time gig and I’m a bit stuck.
I have two layers, both with the same fields with the exception that my primary layer has extra fields and is based on a different set of polygons.
How do I intersect or join (specific fields from) my primary layer and my secondary layer without having new fields (tacked on the end) and a new output layer?
I have tried intersect and join/spatially join and they both work in that the data from from secondary layer is joined or intersected but in a new output.
What I want to do is be able to mash the identical fields from both layers and suck the attribute data from my secondary layer into my primary layer (as it does in intersect) without creating a new output and duplicating fields.
I’d also like to be able to do this after I add a new polygon to my primary layer.
I use both ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro and know nothing about scripts if that helps.
