I have been asked to create road network buffers around a service yard. We are wanting to calculate the distance from our yard to a well site using this buffer. Only problem is a lot of well sites are off the main roads, some .5-5 miles off the main roads. What buffer is best to use general or detailed? If they are wanting a 25 mile buffer, do I need to create a 22.5 mile buffer to calculate for the possible off road mileage?
