Spatial Relation

Question asked by cgoessl on Apr 16, 2019

I am probably overthinking this issue, but I just can't figure it out. 

I have a point feature that has local business names attached. The user would like to add parcel number (PIN) field and populate it with the PIN from the polygon layer.

I do not want to do a join because of it creating a new feature. This information could be added to, and I don't want to recreate a join every time.  Is there a way to do a spatial relate where the point would be related to the parcel feature, and then I can calculate the field in the point feature from the parcel layer.


I am thinking that I might need to do a model. But every time I draw it out on paper, I can't figure out the selecting part to copy the data from the parcel to the point.

Oh, and let me throw the big curve ball. I want to do this within GIS Pro.
