I am working on my dissertation right now and need to use Arcgis to calculate the distance from the nearest fire to each house.
Since fire is polygon and house is point, I just use near tool to calculate distance from the nearest fire to the house. However the fires I am interested in is the fire that burned within the past 7 years before the sale of the homes. So I need to exclude all fires that burned after the sale date of the home, and all fires that burned greater than seven years before the sale of the home.
Is there anyway to add a time constraint to near tool using python?
