I have a surveyor working on collecting manhole data, we have since hired another surveyor to collect manhole data. I have 2 shape files, all have similar data, but I need to get them into 1 file. Can someone take a look at these and tell me the best way to do this? I'm guessing I will have to map fields somehow, but have not ever done this being a newbie. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated. Not asking anyone to do this for me, but just need a little direction on the process. Thanks much.
