I am trying to find the distance between specific addresses and the coast line for a school project and am struggling. I have figured out how to do it with the distance tool but have to find the distance for multiple homes. Is there a way that I can do so without having to enter the addresses in manually and finding the nearest coast line ? I am new to GIS but figured that a layer that draws the coast line paired with the near function can work. I do not know how to automate the process. Any insight ?
