I would like to capture the gps points which are closer the polygon boundary (inside), not point in polygon.

I have arcgis arcinfo v9.3.

i can do with inner buffer of the polygon and intersection and finding the remaining gps points. Is there any other way ?

Select By Location:

Select all the points intersecting the polygon and indicate a NEGATIVE search distance.

Reverse the resulting selection set.

Run another Select by Location on the reversed selection set but use "Within"
