comment Iterating a model to create 3 buffers around three points and find their intersection (trilateration) in arcgis 10
Actually that is helpful. I had avoided looking at the python script for the model because I'm not great with python and assumed it would be really complicated. In reality it's like 40 lines of code. I wish I'd looked at this a week ago! Writing scripts to iterate over datasets (albeit in perl or R) is like the one programming task I've done before. Thanks!

For the model I have working currently, I've just entered the three reference GPS points as separate features, and then I'm entering the distance values for each run of the model manually. This is a big part of why it's so time consuming. The underlying data I'm working from is the plant ID, distance 1, distance 2, distance 3, and the GPS data for each of the reference points. I included a screen shot above of my attempt to enter one plant's worth of data as a table, although not a dbase table.
