Merkman,

If you have -- or can get -- your points into GSAK, there's a macro available that will allow you to get the county name for each. It goes through the list and puts the county name in User Data Field 2.


It takes a little effort to set up, but it worked well for me when I was doing the county challenge.

Again, if you're using GSAK, you might want to take a look at my GSAK County Data filters. This is a set of filters I created so I could easily filter for the caches in any county.

Hope this helps.

My fault, I indended to posted the link for the county macro: Here it is.

My county filters are right here.

Let me know if you need more info. Right now, though, I'm going caching.

I did a Chicago & back trip all weekend, apparently right behind DLHCacher (what are the chances of picking a random cache in downtown Chicago and having DLH be the last log entry?)

Anyway, if you haven't finished this, send me the points as X,Y coordinates and I'll send you back the county assignments, it's a pretty basic Arc operation (I say that now...)
