I have put a buffer around points from a point data set. But some buffers overlap each other. Now I would like to remove all the buffers (from the data set) which overlap another buffer. Does somebody have a suggestion, I would like to use the modelbuilder as I dont know how to use python.
Try a three step approach:
- Intersect your buffers with themselves
- Use the buffer_intersect layer to select layer by location and specify "INTERSECT"
- Delete the selected buffers
The image to the left shows the original buffers. The image to the right show the intersected buffers in red and the selected original buffers in turquoise.
