Expression Explanation
Function Name SpatialJoin
<Target Dataset> A String representing the target layer.
<Join Dataset> A String representing the join layer.
<output dataset> A String - the full name of the output layer.
< Join Type> A String representing the Join Type to be used. Valid values: "OneToMany" and "ManyToMany"
<CutOff Distance> A Double representing the Cut-Off Distance to be used. The units of the tolerance are the units of spatial reference of the Target Dataset
<Join Fields< A String representing a list (separator ";") of the fields to transfer together with the method for each field. Valid values - "Sum", "Max", "Min" for number fields and "First", "Last" for string fields. Example: "Field1 Sum; Field2 First; Field3 Min"
{Keep All} A Boolean indicated whether to keep all target features - see explanation above.
{Add Statistics} A Boolean indicated whether to add statistics fields - see explanation above.
