Basics: I have a country wide dataset of Census blocks, I need to find the population of unrelated boundaries that do not ALWAYS follow census blocks. I would like to use Select by Location-centroid as my method for determining what census blocks should be in the different boundaries.
Any tips on how to do this in a model?
So I originally was intersecting my Boundaries (we will call them FBoundaries) with census Blocks to find the population of each of the fboundaries. However the fboundaries do not always follow the census blocks so I was getting double counts. So what I want to do is somehow tell the model to only take the census block if the centroid of the census block is in the Fboundary. Unfortunately I have the entire country I need to work with. And i'm lost –
