Please help me with this question about "Select by Location". I'm currently using ArcGis 9.3.1
I have multiple "Selector" polygons. Ideally, I would like to select a points shapefile with "Select by Location" using the selector polygon. Then I create a column in the attribute table and put a value of "1" in only the rows that are selected.
So the process is farily straightforward, except that I have about 30 selector polygons, so it's hard to repeat the process of select by location, create column, tag the rows that are selected, over and over.
I've tried to think of a few ways of doing this, but they don't seem to accomplish exactly what I might need. I could try a model in Modelbuilder, but my polygons are constantly changing, and I'm not sure of a way for Modelbuilder to grab all the latest polygons. Other way I thought was merging all the selector polygons into one shapefile, then maybe doing a spatial join? However I accomplish this, I really need separate columns for each selector polygon in the table, so the points file can show any overlapping polygons.
