 bool BufferPolygonSF(ref string inputSFPath, ref string resultSFPath, System.Double distance, System.Boolean uniteOverlaps, MapWinGeoProc.Enumerations.Buffer_HoleTreatment holeTreatment, MapWinGeoProc.Enumerations.Buffer_CapStyle capStyle)


Creates a buffer around each polygon in the input shapefile.


inputSFPath Full path to the polygon shapefile.
resultSFPath Full path to the resulting buffer shapefile.
distance Distance from polygon border at which the corresponding buffer should be created.
uniteOverlaps True if overlapping buffers should be combined.
holeTreatment For multiPart polygons with holes, specifies what should be done with holes.
Ignore (no holes will be included in result buffer), Opposite (if distance is positive, hole will shrink),
Same (if distance is positive, hole will grow), Original (the hole will not be buffered but will still exist inside of the buffer shape).
capStyle Edge treatment (Pointed or Rounded caps).


False if an error was encountered, true otherwise.
