I have a road (line) system and need to create a polygon from it to show the right-of-way area. The right-of-way area is calculated in the field from taking measurements from the road centreline. From these measurements a total right-of-way area is calculated (m2.)
I am wondering if it is possible to create a buffer with a pre-defined area based on the measurements taken in the field. Possibly through a Python script?
Without a tool to do this, it takes some time as I have to guess the average right-of-way with and create a buffer using that measurement. So it takes a lot of trial and error time.
I am using ArcMap 10.2.
