I have 2 layers, one which is a point layer with entertainment locations and the other is a polygon layer of buildings. I'm tasked to find how many buildings are within a 180m radius of the entertainment locations.
Obviously my first instinct was to create a buffer and then use a spatial join however, if I check the
Join_Count column afterwards and compare it to the
Select by Location result they don't match which means the Spatial Join counts something extra. After fiddling with the data I came to a conclusion that the Spatial Join is counting other near overlapping buffers.
I'm using ArcGIS 10.7
Edit: the question is how do I get to see the correct number of building inside each buffer (or how do i find out how many buildings i have around each entertainment spot in a 180m radius)
Photo for reference:
