I have a geocoded table of addresses within a county. I have created buffers and their intersections around amenities like parks, trails, and a river, with the intention of conducting a hedonic pricing analysis. I need to create a dummy variable for the intersecting addresses in the county address attribute table. How can I do this?

Can you populate a field with mile/kilometer distance where roads intersect? This is what we did at a DoT I worked at for rural highways, but we already had mile markers. We created false addresses by multiplying the mile post by 10K or 1K (don't remember). As long as you are consistent, a geocoder should be able to handle false addresses.
