I have a wokspace that takes the latest version of my data and creates buffers and then merges those to one polygon.
When 2 buffer polygons are near each other and close to create a hole. I would like to find a reasonable area size and remove only the holes. If there are small polygons for one reason or another I need to keep them.
Another question not exactly related mentions the donuthole extractor. Do I need to extract these and then delete them?
I used the solution with a tester and WAS successfull. The part I was missing was I had to put all of this "behind" my first disolver.
It wasn't an actual donut until the two parts were together. I suppose I could get fancy and put some other locgic in front to make it that way.
The other problem I was having was it is using sq meters not hectares or acres. :)
On to the second problem which I have not had any luck with yet.
I like the rounded version not the butt of bufferer. However would like to limit the ends (after the merge) to being only a specified distance from the end of the actual line.
OK I figured out I need to use the parameter created when I set the AreaCalculator. But I still don't see proper results.
I would like to chop off the end flat at maybe 20' offset from the actual end of the line. Can I get a direction or pointer on accomplishing this?
