Basic problem: I have two layers, a layer containing river basin outlines and a layer of wetland outlines and types.
I need to make a buffer around one river basin, and then create 100 random points within a single type of wetlnad within the river basin + buffer.
I guess the first problem is how to create a buffer around just one river basin when the layer contains many (they do not overlap). The second problem is that I need to isolate just one wetland type within the total area contained by the buffer (so that river basin + the buffer around it), so that I can make random points inside that wetland type.
I've been fighting with trying to make a buffer around just that one river basin for days, I'm sure it's possible but I've never used buffers before. How do I do this?
Thanks in advance for any help!
