I have a point layer and a polyline layer (each contains more than 100k records), I would like to process the polyline layer within point buffer zones. For example, for each point in the point layer, identify polylines that within a 10m buffer zone and calculate point-to-line distances.

It would be something like:

for point in points_layer:
    create a 10m buffer;
    identify polylines that intersect with the buffer; 
    do point-to-line distance calculation;

Is there a way in AO/AE to do geoprocessing within buffer zones? Thanks!
