I am using a polygon shapefile and I want to select the polygon with the highest value. I am trying to implement this in ModelBuilder using ArcGIS Desktop v. 10.1. Ideally I want to select the maximum record and then use that selection to conduct additional analyses.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
Many thanks for your reply. I had read about linking "Summary Statistics" with a tabular join. When you say
"join back to the original to do selections"
do you mean a tabular join? The problem is that after the summary statistics, all I have is the Maximum value and an ID value - is there a simple means by which I can also return the value of that polygon which has the maximum value?
Thanks again for your help,
