Buffer Tool

The Buffer tool will take any polygon or polyline spatial object and expand or contract its extents by the user specified value.

Configuration Properties

  1. Specify the Spatial Field that contains the spatial object to be buffered.

  2. Generalize to 1% of Buffer size, default. This is a speed optimization as it will cut down on the amount of nodes in the buffered object.

  3. Set the Buffer Size parameters

Example of a buffered polygon object: The image below shows a positive buffer (1 mile) and a negative buffer (-1 mile).
