Project Help?

I am curious if anyone has an idea of some tools that could help me with a project I'm working on. I have a streams shapefile and I want to see the areas that are >50m from the stream and have a slope of 40° or higher. Preferably I want to turn those areas into a shapefile as well. I can provide more info if needed but this is the basis of what I'm trying to get done I have a DEM of the area as well (the streams shapefile is derived from it).

Do a Euclidean distance from the stream.

calculate the slope in degrees.

Use the Con tool to get the areas (eg Con(DistRaster > 50 & SlopeRaster > 40, 1, 0)  assuming a cell size of 1.

The areas classed as 1 meet your condition, 0 otherwise

... sort of retired...
