I have 1 point layer and a fishnet. For every grid cell, I'd like to pick only 1 point that is furthest to all the edges of that grid cell. How can I do with ArcGIS 10.3.1? Thanks!

hmmm...

  • produce the centroid of the fishnet so that each cell is represented by a point.
  • perform a Near analysis and find the point that is closest to it
  • that will be the point that is furthest from each cell's edge, since the centroid is the point furthest from the cell
