To help decisionmaking, I want to rank housing units by the number of grocery stores nearby, limited to a 2-mile radius for each unit. I am trying to define my mapping problem and find out what ArcMap tools will help.
- list the distance between target feature (house) and nearby feature (grocery) within 2 miles;
- rank the target features by the number of near features within specific radii. For example, 1 store between 0 ft and 1320 ft radius, 1 store between 1320 ft and 2640 ft radius, 2 stores between 2640 ft and 5280 ft radius, and 4 stores between 5280 ft and 10560 ft radius.
Point Distance (from the Proximity toolset) lists the distances but doesn't include unique IDs or the names of my features, frustratingly. Also, it's only a table.
I am measuring the distances to multiple assets of different FC type (points <> store locations, hospitals; and polygons <> parks).
Will I be using Euclidean Distance and Reclassify?
