I'm a new Python student looking for some help regarding a homework problem. I need to analyze wells with each county in a state. So I have the wells shapefile and a counties shapefile for a state. Not sure how to combine the data so I have a list of wells in each county.
I thought I'd use following:
arcpy.MakeFeatureLayer_management("wells", "wells_lyr") arcpy.SelectLayerByLocation_management("wells_lyr", "INTERSECT", "counties", "", "NEW_SELECTION")
But this does not give me the wells in each county. Hope this is not too vague; not looking for exact code, just the high level process.
