Hi, I'm new to ArcGIS. I am in the process of completing part of dissertation project looking at the potential of low carbon energy as an alternative to a proposed nuclear development, as part of this I have designated suitable locations for which wind turbines can be constructed. However each of these turbines have a set distance needing to be separated by so a buffer zone and the consequent buffer circle have been estimated at 70685 sq m;


1. Is there a tool which could estimate the number of buffered points which could be situated inside a polygons (Mock-up shown in attached picture


2. Slightly more confusing, the buffer zones can theoretically cross the polygon boundary so is there an appropriate tool for both of these points


Any help would be greatly appreciated
