How do I mass resize my buildings polygon using representation?

February 03 2009 | 0 comments

Hi sir/madam,

I would like to check on how can I prevent my buildings outline from conflicting with my roads outline? My challenge will be not having to change the width of my roads layers.

I have tried the offset function in representations. However, it works well on buildings with simple shape, not those with irregular shapes.

Attach is a print screen of Before and After applying an offset in representations.

Are there other methods I can try for solving this problem?

Please advise.

Thank You

Mapping Center Answer:

Have you tried using the geometric effect named "Scale" to mass resize the polygons? This seemed to work for me in a test that I did to recreate your problem.
