Using the Find nearby tool, you can easily find locations that are near other locations on your map. For example, you may want to find distribution centers that are near a warehouse.
The Find nearby tool lets you select features on the map and find features that are within a specified distance or drive time of the selection.
The Find nearby tool is only available for layers created from Microsoft Office data and for feature service layers.
You can also access the Find nearby tool from a pop-up window. See Configure and display pop-ups for more information.
The Find nearby pane opens.
Continue to draw shapes or click individual features to select more features as needed.
To pan the map while making selections, use the Pan tool.
The search looks for features in the target layer that are near the selected features in the source layer.
The search area for each Find nearby action is generated as a temporary layer in the Contents pane, using the name of the original layer with a prefix indicating the name of the related action, for example, Find nearby buffer - LayerName. You can use these layers as reference for future select actions.
The results of the search are selected on the map and the Find Nearby pane shows the number of selected features.
To work with the results in the spreadsheet, do one of the following:
Select more features on the map and click Select Excel rows again to add additional rows to the selection in your spreadsheet.
