Hi there,

I work with data that I receive monthly (1,500 - 2,000 records) that often has errors in geocoding.  I was wondering if there was a geoprocessing tool that can basically tell me whether or not the coordinates given to me fall within the town or county that is provided in another column? Or, would this be something I could create myself using a python script?  Thank you!

your points in your county... or they aren't

Sorry, I think I should've been more specific in my ask.  I could be doing something incorrectly, but this doesn't help me if a point is labeled "County A" in the "County column, is supposed to fall in "County A", but the coordinates incorrectly place it in "County B".

Not directly, it will select the points that are within county A, what you can do is

  • select by location those that are identified as being in count A 
  • then do a select by attributes, but don't clear the selection

        Select features using attributes—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation 

  • then do the select by attributes those that are NOT in couty A.   (presume you have a column that does that)

You now have the errors
