Find nearest features using Arcade expressions in a popup


This sample demonstrates how to access other features from a layer using the FeatureSet capabilities available in Arcade expressions. When the user clicks a hotel feature in this sample, the Arcade expression executes and finds all restaurants within 500 meters of the hotel. The hotel's distance to each restaurant is then measured. Information for the closest restaurant is then displayed in the hotel's popup.
