I have several polygon shapefiles of counties in 6 US states. I also have three shapefiles of country-wide "impaired waterways" a line, a polgyon, and a point feature classes.
What I want is a count of the number of the total geometries (ALL of the impaired waterways) that are within each COUNTY.
Is there a way I can do this in a loop or a batch? I can understand some code, but I do not code myself (yet! working on it!), but is there a tool somewhere that I can use to accomplish this goal?
I know I could split each county shapefile into individual shapefiles and then do a select by location on the three impaired waterways layers, and then get three separate totals to add together, but this will be immensely time consuming, as I have 654 total counties, and I would have to do it three times, once for each waterway layer.
