I'm having trouble figuring out the right way to approach this problem; I have data points that indicate an event in one shapefile, and in another I have roadways. I'd like to identify the roadways where an event occurred. I've tried joining the tables based on coordinate data, but the values to match exactly. I've also tried the intersect, clip, and spatial join tools. None have been able to correctly identify the roads with event points. Any ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated!
On a copy of your data try using the SNAP tool to move the points to the roads.
You can also use a Join based on location. I will join the points to the nearest road
