I am now using ArcGIS 10.1 and currently a beginner in ArcPy.
There is a project requiring to generate landmark-based route description. I am wondering how to use a buffer to find the landmarks in the neighborhood of the pre-defined route, in additional to provide a relationship between landmark and the route
are there any alternatives way to find out this "landmark-based route description" instead of using ArcGIS existing option?
The final product of the project requires a description of route in every turn/edge, such as:
"Turn right in McDonald to the Manhattan Road"
"Walk along the Manhattan Road, and there is a Park on your right"
It is not necessary to provide a distance in the description, as the target of the description is pedestrian and he/she doesn't really need this piece of information.
