Hi,

Can anyone suggest me, which is the best way to perform spatial query with buffer distance for huge data. I have used arcobjects at the back end but it takes lot of time.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,

Akshay Loya

HI Akshay, have you tried using select by location within a distance?

Hi Sephe,

Select by location takes feature class as input but I've features rather.

So was wondering how I would use that.

You have what for an input? I don't really understand. What form is your data in? Huge data is not very descriptive.

The query is like:

Highlight Villages where DistrictCode is 1732 having Colleges within 1 Km.

So I'm selecting  features from village feature class which have  DistrictCode = 1732.

But these are not features? So then what are they?

I don't know what you're trying to say, but I have to assume that these are in fact features. First select by attributes from your villages layer, where District = 1732 (ArcGIS Desktop help; select by attribute​), then select by location from your villages within a distance (1km) of your colleges, using the subset selection method (ArcGIS Desktop; select by location​).

Selecting only those villages (features) from village feature class having DistrictCode = 1732
