I have to evaluate where installing a turbine would be most efficient, depending on wind speed and price of properties surrounding each cell in a raster. The cost on value of properties is computed using some estimation based on the distance of the turbine to nearby properties.
I know the price of each property in the area. I have to find a way to calculate how much each turbine would cost, in terms of loss value, on the surrounding properties.
I thought of doing this by making buffers for each given distance, joining the resulting layer with the layer containing the price of properties, and then making a buffer reducing the buffer containing the value of properties to the cell (therefore, in the same, negative amount of the first buffer). However, the value of properties does not appear in the last buffer layer:
(example) Cell => 600 m buffer => join buffer with layer containing value of properties => buffer - 600 m => cell
Is there a way to keep information from the original cells on the buffers created?
Is there an alternative way to calculate the loss of value caused by a cell on the surrounding cells?
