The reference layer (or a selection on a layer) containing the features to be matched. The tool searches for other features similar to these features. When more than one feature is provided, matching is based on attribute averages.
The candidate layer (or a selection on a layer) containing candidate-matching features. The tool searches for features most similar (or dissimilar) to the Input Layer parameter among these candidates.
The name of the output feature class. The output feature class contains a record for each of the Input Layer parameters and for all the solution-matching features found.
A list of numeric attributes representing the matching criteria.
Most Or Least Similar
Specifies whether the features to be found are most similar or least similar to the input_layer parameter.
Specifies whether matches will be based on values or cosine relationships.
Number Of Results
The number of solution matches to be found. Entering zero or a number larger than the total number of Search Layer features will return rankings for all the candidate features, with a maximum of 10,000.
An optional list of attributes to include with the output. You can include a name identifier, categorical field, or date field, for example. These fields are not used to determine similarity; they are only included in the output parameter attributes for your reference. By default, all fields are added.
Specifies the ArcGIS Data Store where the output will be saved. The default is Spatiotemporal big data store. All results stored in a spatiotemporal big data store will be stored in WGS84. Results stored in a relational data store will maintain their coordinate system.
