creating buffers using results from OD calculation

Discussion created by willis14 on May 12, 2010
Hello Network Analyst users~

I have created a file of origin-destination distances (which creates a new variable for the distance). Now I would like to use that distance variable to create unique buffers around the features from the origin file (i.e., the buffer distance will be the OD distance). The x-y coordinates for that feature class are in a different file, of course.
       As a result, I should get a file of unique buffers around the 200 or so features.
       Is there some way to do this in NA, or is it a desktop question since I will be needing the buffer tool?

Thanks, and best regards,
Susan Filomena
