Negative buffer (AG 9.2)

Discussion created by m@tt on May 26, 2011
Hi,

I'm trying to run a negative buffer on some polygons although it keeps throwing up an error on polygons and creates an empty feature class. The error message reads:

Cannot buffer feature 4 by -100,000000
("esri.GeometryEnvironment") A null geometry does not correspond to any ESRI geometry type.
Failed to execute (Buffer_3).

Obviously this is because some polygons are too small and should be deleted in the buffering process, although ArcGIS doesn't realise this... is there any way around this bug or some update which corrects it??

Cheers,

Matt
