I have three shapefiles. The first one contains census blocks (polygon) with children population (up to 12 years old), the second one contains the location of primary schools (points) and the third one contains the road network (polyline).

Is there any tool in order to create school sectors based on each school capacity, the student population of each blocks and the network distance of each block from schools?

  • Are school sectors built from census tracts? The Near command will add the Distance of each Census block to the closest Primary school. Dissolve will combine adjacent Census Tracts and you can Sum the population during the operation. You could investigate the Analysis Tools, Intersect, Spatial Join. Summary Statistics. – klewis Jan 4 at 18:25
