I'm currently running into an issue where if I run a Select By Location on some points Intersecting a polygon layer, not all of the points within the polygons are being selected. This is happening more to points that are on polygons that contain 'island polygons' within them, even though they are separated. But this issue has not entirely consistent, some polygons with islands are not displaying any issues, and some polygons with islands, only some points within are not being selected, (point randomly being selected within these polygons. 

These layers were exported from AGOL, and this issue has been occurring in different versions of exports. I am aware that there are sliver gaps and overlaps, but nothing too major. 

 

Thanks for any help!

Hi @GISJess, not sure about the reason for this issue. However, I have faced it in past, to resolve this I used the following workflow:

Create  brand new feature class- one for point & one for polygon

  • Keep m & z values disabled

  • Import fields from the old feature class (so your schema for the layer is same).

  • Once created, toggle the visibility of old and new polygon feature class ON.
  • Select all the features from the old layer >> Copy them

  • Turn off this layer, and select new layer in 'Contents' pane.
  • Use 'Paste Special' to paste these features to new feature class.

  • Do the same steps for point feature class.
  • Remove old data from the map.
  • Use 'Select By Location' to check if this works.

Moreover, sometimes, while exporting feature class...keeping m & z values disabled, also can resolve the issue:
