I am new to the ArcMap world, I work in civil engineering as an EIT and I was tasked with finding out some information on some parcel data, ie: address, ownership, value, etc.
I have the parcel data as a .shp file in ArcMap as well as a proposed highway (the red line) .shp within ArcMap. I am trying to extract the parcel data that is within or touches that proposed highway linework. I am not sure if this is possible or how to succeed. I've attached an image to better help explain.
Thank you all for your time and help.
I do this very frequently and will second what Dan has suggested.
I normally use Select by Location and put in a 100 foot buffer on the line just to make sure I am grabbing every parcel that might be involved with this linework.
