I am extremely new to GIS mapping and I'm trying to do what I believe would be relatively simple. I have two layers: one contains data on school locations in Chicago and the other contains data on child abductions; both layers are point shape. What I would like is to only show the schools that are within one mile of a child abduction in order to reduce the number of features shown on the map.
I apologize if this is a duplicated question, but the 'Similar Questions' box didn't suggest the type of question I'm looking to have answered.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Technical details: I'm operating on a Windows 7 OS using ArcEditor Single Use evaluation trial software. I'm somewhat familiar with Python (but not overly familiar) if needed.
