The Spatial Join tool is an overlay geoprocessing tool. This tool will join the attributes coming from a feature class to another feature class, based on their spatial relationship. The new feature class will have the geometry of the target feature class and the attribute fields of both the input feature classes. The spatial join is a classical solution when you want to extract data from CAD files.
In this recipe, you will add data from the
.dxf source datasets to an existing geodatabase named
VeloGIS.gdb. Your geodatabase contains one feature dataset named
Planimetry and five empty feature classes:
There are five CAD files:
