Polygon width script help

Discussion created by jholden47 on Jan 8, 2013

I am new to scripting

I have a points layer (equipment locations) and a polygon layer (rivers). I need a script that will measure the width of the polygon at the each point.

the points have not been geocoded accuratly so some points are in the middle of the river some are on the bank somewere so the scrip needs to find the nearest river and then measure the width.

Any ideas welcome!!
