I am working with arcgis desktop 10.2. I am a new user and I would be grateful for help.
I have a point shape file, something like cities, which contain city level information, population, area, average temperature in the city etc. Is there a way to identify for each city the total population (or any other variable of interest) in the k nearest cities. So example would be for US, I have a shape file containing all the big cities, I would like to know what is the total population living in 5 (this parameter can change) nearest cities around New York. I would like to do it for all the cities in the shape file.
