I am working on a project to prioritize open space (OS) for protection. One of the criteria we are using is the number of adjacent protected parcels to an unprotected one - the more adjacent parcels of already protected open space the better the connectivity.
I have two layers - one of protected OS and one of unprotected OS. I am trying to count the number of adjacent polys of protected OS to each parcel of unprotected OS. I can identify the adjacent protected OS parcels using "search within distance" of 75' to allow for cross stream and road adjacencies. However I cannot find a way to count the number of protected OS parcels that fall within the 75'.
Anyone have any suggestions?
Thx in advance for any help.
