Extracting values from a polyline buffer

Discussion created by 93megs on Apr 15, 2014
Hi. I would be grateful for some help regarding analysis of a buffer I have created in ArcMap 10.2.

I have made multiple 5 km buffers from a polyline in ArcMap, which marks the bottom of Nepal with the buffers extending up to 155 kmnorthwards to the Himalayas. I have many layers already in ArcMap, including slope elevation, angle, geology, TRMM data etc., and I need to get a value of each of these factors for each buffered polygon. I ultimately want to produce a graph with distance from Nepal's base on the x-axis, elevation on the y-axis, and another variable such as slope angle on the opposite y-axis - not dissimilar from this:

Any help ASAP would be really appreciated - it is for a university dissertation!
