I'm attempting to run the Buffer Analysis tool with a distance of 3 km over multiple shapefiles at the same time. I was given a folder with different types of files and ran a for loop to create a new list with just the files ending with ".shp" that I have below.
import os import arcpy from arcpy import env env.workspace = "file_path" env.overwriteOutput = True items = os.listdir("file_path") newlist =  for names in items: if names.endswith(".shp"): newlist.append(final) print newlist
Thus, this creates my list with just the shapefiles. However, this is where I struggle. I'm not sure how to run the buffer analysis tool over this new list that I've created.
