Hi everyone,
As part of my school project, I want to migrate from manual work to a more automated faster way to do the following using Arc GIS:
I have a set of points (Lat. and Long.); they are a part of a line network, and I have the GIS data for all streets in the area of my interest. I was wondering if there is any way I can program GIS to export (to excel) all the points that are within a certain radius of the streets. Also, I want to export all the issues that form a line that crosses the streets.

Thank you for your ideas!

Hi Thulfiqar,

There are different ways of accomplishing this. One workflow you could do is buffer the street linework to create a polygon that encompasses the point data. Once you have a polygon output, you could select by location to select and export the points that are within a certain radius of the street that you specified in your streets buffer polygon. You could then automate this workflow with either model builder or a python script. Hope this helps!
