I'm quite new to ArcGis and everything that comes along with it and struggle with an assignment that I have. It is about finding suitable excavation points for which I have gotten several different types of maps to combine and analyse. For most of the requirements I have found the solution already, however, I'm not really sure what type of data handling/operation to use to find the solution to the following criteria:
- Excavation points are not allowed in areas of forest with a minimum of 10ha adjacent to a specific habitat. A shape file is provided to analyse this.
I thought this should be handled by processing by neighbourhood and buffering, but I'm not sure
- Another criteria is that the thickness of sandlayer needs to be at least 5m. I have been given sampling sites and a table with the findings belonging to these sites
The only thing I could think of was processing by attribute and then joins and relates, but that also seems like the wrong thing to do.
Perhaps there is anyone that can give me a tip or hint? Or maybe some place where I can find more info on these types of analysis?
It's hard to give specific tips without knowing your data, but here are some general ones:
Sand layer thickness
Neighboring a specific habitat
