Model Builder: Iterators

I'm relatively new to model builder and am working on a project which involves collecting data from hundreds of radar echo vector shapefiles for a network of specific lat-long points.  The radar shapefiles consist of thousands of small polygons with intensities for their specific locations, and my specific lat-long points are their own shapefile of points.  I'm wondering if there is a good way to use model builder to pull in each vector radar image, extract the value of a field for all my lat-long points, add it to the attribute table of my lat-long points (or a new table entirely), and then repeat this process for all the radar images.  I can do this manually with many spatial joins but was looking for a more efficient way to do this.  Thanks, any help is great appreciated.
