Beginning work on this app -
Have a question from the main users regarding buffering. We (a City gov't) have a requirement relating to who gets notified of certain upcoming projects that results in using a 300 ft buffer most of the time. However, this is tricky because we are required to essentially not count the public right-of-way (essentially streets) in the buffer. So we need to buffer tool needs be 'smart' enough to not count the distance anytime it covers a right of way, and then continue calculating the distance after skipping over the right of way.
A giant pain, and I doubt that a simple buffer tool can be configured to do this. Anyone know if 1) the default configuration accounts for this, and 2) if not, if this kind of thing is possible?
