I have a map with 6000+ 1km buffers of ponds I want to clip them so the buffer does not cross a barrier which is a series of polylines in a separate shapefile.
I have created a 1 km buffer around all ponds.
I have merged several road files to create a barrier file.
I now want to clip the buffer rings against the buffers.
I tried converting the barrier lines to polygons and then clipping but this just clipped the edge of the whole shape not to the individual road features.
I basically do not want the buffers to cross a barrier.
