    Default Buffer INSIDE Polygon Features

    In ArcView 3.x the Buffer tool allowed the user to buffer both inside, outside, as well as either option. In ArcGIS, however, the Buffer tool only allows either outside or full buffering. Does anyone know of a way to buffer the inside of a polygon feature (other than firing up ArcView 3.2!)?

    Default Re: Buffer INSIDE Polygon Features

    from the help files

    "When buffering polygon features, negative buffer distances can be used to create buffers inside the polygon features. Using a negative buffer distance will reduce the polygons' boundaries by the distance specified."

    Super! Thanks for the tip - I didn't realize that was an option in the dialog.
