I have a problem with buffering and impact that land masses can have on distance.
We have SAR stations with vessels that have a 50nm action range to them. Now, Yes, we can draw a 50nm buffer around but we also wish for GIS to take into account (just like a vessel, in contrast to an airplane) that the 50nm range must go around land masses.
What ArcGIS tool could I use to fulfill this request?
I attached an image of my question.
