I have two shapefiles: one with borehole data and one with point
values. Both shapefiles are in the same coordinate system and have
defined elevations (pointz and polyzinez). I want to spatially
join the two features so that I can extract the geologic layer to
the point feature. When I run the spatial join command, the output
contains mismatched values that don't correspond to the nearest
feature. The steps I use are as follows:
1. Convert borehole point data to polyline(z).
2. Convert point values to point(z).
3. Run Spatial Join tool from toolbox in order to merge the two
features (one to one, intersect, 0m).
The three files are attached as well as a picture of what I am
trying to do.

Hi Seth,

FYI - there are no attachments to your post. And I don't have 3d analyst so I can't speak to this directly, however, I usually find it much easier to join tables (on a common item) rather than join two layers spatially. Just a thought.

Good luck.

I found a similar thread on ESRI's support center that has the files included - but it's a stub.

Here is a direct link to the files.
