Closest Spatial-Join only if attributes match

Question asked by PSArcOnline on Oct 23, 2014


is it possible to perform a spatial join with the "closest" option and only consider features with the same attribute?


For example I have an axis layer (polyline) and a layer with house numbers (point). I want to connect the attributes of the house numbers to the axis. But only the house number which is closest to the corresponding (via attribute) axis.


I attached a graph, showing the problem.


I can't to this with the spatial join tool only. Which other tools do i need?


Thanks for your help.
