I have a set of polygons within a single shapefile. I want to keep only polygons, which are located >500 meters from another polygons in the same shapefile.
I thought to apply NEAR Tool in ArcGIS to measure the NEAR distances and then Select the features located > 500m. However, the NEAR Tool measures the closest distances from one feature to another feature only if I have two shapefiles.
Is there a way how to select features based on near distances in within a single shapefile?
I am using ArcGIS 10.1 with Spatial Analyst licence.
