dear Readers,


buffer parameters help page talks about distances to be sent as an array.

BufferParameters | API Reference | ArcGIS API for JavaScript 3.20 



1. what is the purpose of sending an array - does it take more than 1 value - if yes, what is the significance of the other distance measurements.


2. Will it take negative numbers> if yes, do it have a special significance from a buffering perspective - say for a polygon?


3.  We have a request from the users to mark a buffer inside the polygon - a farm land and the application of manure has to be 100 feet from the fence line. so the farmer can apply manure for this crops that are far away from fence line by at least 100 ft.  


3b. Is it possible to tell the buffer function in the geometry server to do this>


thanks and regards
