- Creating buffers around elements in your map…is a very common geoprocessing task…that is useful for a wide variety…of analysis and display purposes.…Basically, a buffer identifies regions…that are within a certain distance of any point,…line, or polygon features that are in your map.…The Buffer tool creates new polygons…that surround the identified features.…Let's use the Buffer tool to identify the area…within 10 miles of Mount Rainier National Park.…I've gone ahead and started up a new…blank ArcMap document.…In order to get started, I'm going to open up…the Catalog pane, and from my Folder Connections,…go into ExerciseFiles, Chapter_07,…Chapter<u>07</u>Data, and I'm going to find…the file called MORA_Boundary.shp.…
This is the boundary of Mount Rainier National Park.…In order to get some context,…let's go ahead and Add a Basemap.…I'll click on this button over here…on the right side of the Add Data button,…and choose Add Basemap.…From the ESRI Basemaps, I'll choose Topographic,…and say Add.…Now, in order to see where in the world we're talking about,…
