I just need a quick fix here.
Having trouble finding a way to allow the user to input the new output file name (the one that is created after the buffer function completes). Any ideas?
I am also not sure if I created the variables correctly.
Using the latest (ArcGIS 10.1 SP1)
python script to change point layer to a 50 m buffer layer change the output file name to whatever so it can make a new one
import arcpy arcpy.env.workspace="C:/Users/oxana/Desktop/David" arcpy.Buffer_analysis("builteditptFT", "c:/users/oxana/desktop/david/PDpyth1","50 meters","FULL","ROUND","LIST")
note that this only buffers from the point layer that was converted from
the centroids of the newly created buildings
it is prone to generalizing around each point because the buffer radiates 50 meteres from the center of each building (not the outsides)
