    Earthquakes are often displayed as "beach balls" in maps and applications (example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Focal_mechanism#Graphical_representation_.28.22beachball_plot.22.29).

    We want to be able to display 2D beach balls in ArcMap including publish them in webmaps. There is a script available (see http://forums.esri.com/Thread.asp?c=93&f=1730&t=214159, creates an earthquake epicenter Moment Tensor Solution  based on x,y coordinates, two strike, dip and slip components) that gives the resulting image that we want, but we want to store the result in the mxd and preferably also make this functionality part of the standard Layer properties > Symbology tab.
