Hello all, I am new to python scripting. However, I need to write a phython program to create a buffer for each record of a point feature. The buffer tool from ARCGIS creates a buffer zone layer for all the records. However, some of the points in my datasets are so close that the buffer will intersect with each other. I have to calculate what is the length of transportation network for each record buffer.

Anyone knows how to get started. Probably, I need for loop and cursor. Is there a buffer code template so that I can tweak it a little.

Many thanks
