Distance for point to point

Question asked by Mallory.Barrow on Sep 2, 2014

We have two layers on our map; one is "mines" and the other is "population", both are points.  We are trying to get the population's distance to the closest mine in meters.  We tried euclidean distance, near and point to point distance and have come up with either extremely large or extremely small numbers. Any ideas on how to get this to work?  It appears that the distances are giving us the literal correct distance for what is on our screen, but not for the state of IL... Maybe a scale issue?

 

Thank you.
