I am trying to use ArcGIS ModelBuilder to create a toolbox that places a buffer of 1 mile around X location, but does not cross major highways. Effectively, I am geo-fencing in real estate comps.
In the model below, for every "active" (property in green) I put a 1 mile buffer to capture all properties "closed" (in blue), then use an intersection to exclude it from crossing the major highways and excluding and closed properties over the boundary.
Unfortunately, this does not work.
Any thoughts on the proper way to do this?
Here is an image of the roads or boundaries that I already have and do not want my buffers to cross.
Here is an image of the current ModelBuilder I have, however it is wrong and does not work.
