    Default Calculating distances between point and line

    Hi,

    I have a set of points (community locations) and a set of line (road network). All I want to do is calculate the shortest distance from each community to the road network on ArcMap.

    I am VERY new to using any sort of GIS software, so very simple terms would be great.

    Thank you in advance - any help will be much appreciated.

    Question Re: Calculating distances between point and line

    Depending upon what license you have you could use the Near Tool. More information can be found here.

    For future reference you need to tell us what version (9.3 or 10) and license level (Arcview,Arceditor or ArcInfo) you are using for us to help you.

    Oh sorry, I am using ArcView. Is there anything I can do on ArcView?
