I work with Address data that goes into a Computer aided Dispatch system. I am calculating a field in my Address Points that takes the Feature ID number for the corresponding street layer with the same name and puts it into the address layer for routing purposes. What I am trying to do is calculate the distance between the address point and its corresponding street segment to make sure I am using the correct street for routing and it didn't t populate the wrong ID into my address field.  

Do any know the best way or tool to do this?

 

Thanks, 

Justin Nettleton

Not sure of an ArcGIS tool that does that out of the box, but you might want to experiment a bit with making selections in your address point feature class and your street centerline feature class based on street name and then apply the Near tool.   Once you figure out the workflow, you could script it with arcpy.

Justin,

I'm not certain if you have access to the tool Near, but it should do what you need. See https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/tool-reference/analysis/near.htm.
