I am having an issue that has been ongoing for months now, but every time I make a buffer from a point layer that is a circle when I export as a KMZ it turns into an oval. I have played with the settings and can't seem to get any different results. See picture below.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I think you might be having a projection issue. Google uses web mercator auxiliary sphere. What projection is your Arc project in? Try getting the project in web mercator before creating the buffers.
Make sure the feature class geographic coordinate system should be GCS WGS 84. I have created a feature class and digitized one circle. Refer below screenshot.
Now use layer to KML gp tool to export the Kmz fir.
Here is the exported results
Thank you for your response, my projects are always in WGS 1984 web mercator by default since most of what I do ends up online. I still get an oval, I had to export use a geodesic buffer to get it right.
