I have created what I thought to be a simple ModelBuilder model and the final output (.shp format) is always an empty. As you will see in the ModelBuilder image below:
- Merged 3 track logs now called TrackMerge
- Buffered the newly created merged file, TrackMerge, with a 500 meter buffer. It is now called BufferOutput.
- I performed an intersect of the BufferOutput.shp with 3 separate polygon shapefiles that are in a folder or Workspace called WeedTracksMergeScript. I did this by using the Iterate Feature tool. I did this by selecting the Workspace called, WeedTracksMergeScript. I gave it a Wildcard name of *Infest because all of the file names that I wanted to be iterated began with Infest.
- The output below is simply called Outputs.shp
I've tried numerous renditions of this and have not been able to make the final Intersection of the 3 additional shapefiles with the shapefile BufferOutput.shp. I've tried skipping the Iterate feature tool and feeding the 3 shapefiles directly into the Intersect tool to intersect with BufferOutput.shp and the output has also been empty.
I know the BufferOutput.shp intersects with the polygon shapefiles in the particular file or Workspace called WeedTracksMergeScript. I have visually inspected this to make sure these shapefiles intersect the BufferOutput.shp.
Can anybody point out what I might be doing wrong?
