Least accumulative cost distance between two set points

Discussion created by fredjhoffmann1 on Jun 5, 2014
Hi all,

I'm looking for a method similar to the cost distance tool that would allow me to find the cost associated with the distance between two defined polygons (and not "from each cell to the nearest source", like the Cost Distance tool in Spatial Analyst allows you to do).
I have a cost raster and a set of a little over 4000 polygons, and would like to select from this set the polygons which are within a cost threshold of each other.

I'd really appreciate any help I can get!
