I have a point feature class where I want to pull attributes from nearby line and polygon feature classes. The issue I am experiencing when using any of the nearest and intersect methods (excluding geometric-specific methods) is source field(s) are getting populated with null values when target features are not found within the neighborhood search distance. Is this how these methods are supposed to work? The help page is very light on specifics.
Additionally, I am experiencing issues where a target feature is definitely within the neighborhood search distance, yet the source attribute is getting updated as null as if a target feature was not found. Attached is a log for INTERSECT_STATS method to populate a point feature class with the minimum value from a nearby line. The source and target are in WGS84 which is why the search distance value is small. I've tried increasing it but it does not help.
I am using Desktop 10.3.1 and AA from the February 2016 build.
Thank you in advance!
