I have 2 shapefiles/datasets (census tract) for the same city (Cleveland OH). The first shape file from 1930s (190 tracts) include the folowing columns:
Tract_grade, LON, LAT (there is no tract id/number)
shapefile_data_1930: Tract_grade LON LAT C -81.93458 41.49005 A -81.82381 41.49122 B -81.80392 41.49449 A -81.78479 41.49376 . . . . . .
The second shape file from 2010 (177 tracts) include the folowing columns:
Tract_id, LON, LAT
shapefile_data_2010: Tract_ID LON LAT 1011.01 -81.74805 41.48173 1011.02 -81.75908 41.48629 1015.01 -81.75645 41.47409 1017.00 -81.74670 41.47562 . . . . . .
However, the census tract boundries and of course coordinates have been changed since 1930s, and I need to link the tract_grade (from 1930s shapefile) with the tract id (from 2010 shapefile). So is there a way to relocate the old tract to be within the new tract boundaries /coordinates because I need both Tract_grade (from 1930s) and tract_id (from 2010)
