Can anyone tell me if I have the correct understanding of the differences between the following tools/techniques:
1) Join point to point using distance option = reports on the single nearest feature. 2) Point Distance = reports distance for all features within radius. 3) Near = as per 2 but reports additional attributes (x,y and angle). 4) Generate Near Table = as per 3 but generates result in new table.
Also is there a simple way to generate a set of lines using the origin point and the x,y (and angle if needed) attributes of the nearest point?
