Data Creation - Attributing Field Using Secondary Layer

Discussion created by Yankees2009 on Mar 31, 2016

Hello.  I'm working with two datasets, one is a polygon layer and one is a point layer.  The polygon layer is just for reference and the point layer is the one I am creating.  I want to be able to create a point and have one of the fields be automatically populated based on an attribute within the spatially associated polygon into which the point falls; kind of like a 'live' spatial join.  I do not want to do a spatial join at the end or another process which outputs a new layer, I want this field population to occur as I am editing and create the point.  Is this possible?  Thanks!
