I start with:

escambiaFL = Interpreter["USCounty"]["Escambia county"]

Answer: Escambia County, Florida, United States.

Next; evaluate:

AdministrativeDivisionData[escambiaFL, "BorderingCounties"]


Baldwin County, Alabama, United States;

Escambia County, Alabama, United States;

Santa Rosa County, Florida, United States.

How can I isolate the bordering counties to Escambia County located in Florida; namely, Santa Rosa County? Unfortunately; "County" is not a known type for "Interpreter", so that I cannot use it in conjunction with "Restricted" to select bordering counties within a state. Thank you!

    $\begingroup$ I simply didn't know (until very recently) that the checkmark must be pressed to accept a solution. Notice that for each of those 37 questions, I have always acknowledged and expressed my gratitude to all those helping me. Thank you @Carl Lange for bringing this issue to my attention. I will press the "just do it" checkmark with a lot of gratitude from now on. (:-) $\endgroup$ Aug 16, 2019 at 17:15

You can simply use Select for this:

  "BorderingCounties"], #["ParentRegion"] == 
   Entity["AdministrativeDivision", {"Florida", "UnitedStates"}] &]

which returns:

{Entity["AdministrativeDivision", {"SantaRosaCounty", "Florida", "UnitedStates"}]}

(that is, a list of all the results within Florida).

You may also be interested in the FilteredEntityClass and EntityFunction functionality that is new in version 12.0.

  • $\begingroup$ Carl; I accepted your answer; the "Just do it" checkmark turned color from gray to green. Is this what it is supposed to happen? Thanks again! $\endgroup$ Aug 16, 2019 at 17:25
