Extracting features that fall within a boundary is a common use of the Clip geoprocessing tool. Clip acts like a cookie-cutter to your data, snipping away any excess features that fall outside.
- [Instructor] Our map of Seattle has buffers…drawn a quarter mile around each school building…within the city.…I now want to visualize what parks fall within that boundary.…To visualize this, I'll use the Clip Geoprocessing Tool…to extract just the park areas…that fall within the school buffer boundaries.…Clip uses a polygon feature…to extract features from another point, line,…or polygon data set that fall within its boundaries.…The classic example of the clip tool…is that it acts like a cookie cutter,…trimming away any excess from the outside edges.…To get to the clip tool,…you'll switch to the Analysis tab of the ribbon,…and you'll find it in the second position…in the tools group.…
You can also go over to the Geoprocessing pane,…by clicking the tab at the very bottom of your screen,…or clicking the Tools icon in the Analysis tab.…Then switch over to the Toolboxes tab…in the Geoprocessing pane, go into Analysis,…and then we'll go into Extract,…and you'll find Clip there at the top.…Go ahead and click on it to activate the tool.…
