I'm looking to create a raster, in ArcView, that represents how many features (either points or polygons) are within a certain distance from any given location within a study area. I know there must be a tool or set of tools with which this can be done, but I've yet to find them and figure it out. Suggestions? thanks!

Are the points or polygons within the study area, only outside the study area, or both? – artwork21 Mar 18 '11 at 17:36
Are you doing this on a dataset of points? – jvangeld Mar 18 '11 at 18:10
they are all within the study area – user2391 Mar 18 '11 at 19:37
