Hello guys, I'm sorta new and would like to ask for advice on Arcpy.
I have 2 feature classes; wells(point) and city_boundary(polygon).
I would like to write a script to see where the points fall or intersect each city boundary and return a specific value from the city boundary or return a specific coded value if that point intersect a particular boundary.
Example: If well(point) 505 falls/intersect in xyz boundary(polygon), return a value of xyz. Then take the value of xyz
and update well(point) 505's City field/column with the value of xyz.
I know I can manually do this, but there are thousands of well(point) and it also have new well(point) feature created everyday. So this would save a lot of time by scripting it.
How would you guys approach this or the general workflow? Thanks!
Have you ruled out putting your workflow into a model? You indicate that you are new at this, so diving into python and arcpy and creating conventional or python toolbox tools wouldn't be my first recommendation
