I am trying to find distances between centroids of islands and the nearest land mass. I have a point shapefile of island centroids and a polygon shapefile of land masses.
My issue is that some of these islands (for which I have centroid points) are also included in the landmass shapefile, so those distances are 0. I would like to know the distance to the nearest land mass that is not itself.
I have tried using the Near tool in ArcGIS and setting the "search radius" to ">0" without luck.
