- [Instructor] We're working with spacial data,…so it would make sense that can use…those spacial locations to make selections.…By comparing the locations of two or more data layers,…we can select features that fall within,…outside of, or near other features.…First, let's update this world map…to include airports and countries.…In the Project pane, I'll expand the databases folder…and find the WorldData geodatabase.…Then, I'll drag the airports feature class…and drop it into our map on the top of the stacking order.…Next, I'll come down and find the countries layer…and I'll toggle that on by turning on the check-box.…
I'd like to create a layer that displays…only the airports within the United States.…We can use the country boundary as a selection border…and grab just the airports that fall inside.…To do this, we'll first select the United States feature.…On the Map tab, come up to the selection group,…and turn on the selection tool.…I'll go ahead and click inside the United States…in order to select that country.…
