In our organization, we have a need to add buffer polygon dynamically to webmap based on a field value in point feature.  I played with Arcade and got my script to return polygon geometry but am not sure how to visualize this on the map.  Is it possible to visualize in-memory geometry with Arcade?

Although you can calculate a buffer from a point geometry, the geometry visualized is inmutable. You should be able to create a new layer based on calculating a buffer around points. See:  https://doc.arcgis.com/en/arcgis-online/analyze/create-buffers.htm

Dear Xander:

Could you please decode what you mean? The link sends me to the create buffers via standard tools - Which is not the how to create buffers in Arcade.

Thanks,

John
