I want to extract points from a feature class that fall within a buffer but are also above a certain height. What is the quickest method to do this?? I.E Points 50m abovesea level and are within 10km of the coast line (buffered)
Select by attribute on the points layer to get the points that meet the height requirement. I assume that the points are a Points.Z file or you can use the Field Calculator to calculate geometry for the Z values.
Select by Location to get the points within the buffer layer. using a select from selected option
