Buffer Issue

Discussion created by Bleroux on Mar 27, 2012
I created a tool in which a user can draw a polygon and it will call out to our geometry server and return a buffered result that is added to a graphic collection. In most cases the results is correct but sometimes I receive a polygon back that has holes in it. There seems to be no rhyme or reason when this occurs. Has anyone run into a similar situation? Any resolution?

In the attached sample the blue is the user drawn polygon and the white is the buffer returned. You can see to the northeast and southern portions of the user drawn polygon that the buffer underneath has large gaps.
