Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Selecting elements by their location, part of ArcGIS Essential Training.
- So far, we've seen how to select features…by directly clicking on them…or by using an SQL query to select by their attributes.…Since we're dealing with geospatial data here…it makes sense that we can also select features…based of their spatial characteristics.…In ArcMap, this is a process called select by location.…Let's say that we're making a map of the area…surrounding Seattle here.…I want to extract all the transportation features…that occur within the surrounding county.…Which happens to be King County.…Let's go ahead and turn off our transportation layer…so we can see the counties.…Now what I want to do, is select…all the transportation features…that fall within King County.…
I'll start by selecting King County…by using the selection tool up here…and I'll select King County.…Now I'll turn my transportation layer back on…and I can go up to the Selection menu.…I don't have to wait for it to finish drawing…and I'll choose Select by Location.…Here I need to choose both the target layer…and a source layer.…The target layer is a layer that contains the features…
