    Spatial Join Using Polylines in 2018.3

    Raoul Leblanc

      I am trying to figure out the spatial join and cannot seem to get it to work.

      I have two shapefiles.

      1. A set of points

      2. a shapefile with areas that look like this

      I tried to join them using the new Intersect join, but it returned nulls.  I know that all the points are within the shapes above.

      Then I noticed that in the second shape file, the Geometry column (which governs the join) is not "Polygon," but instead is "Multilinestring" or Linestring (as below).  is this what is causing the join to fail?

       

      Thanks for the help.
