I want to generate a grid scaled to one square mile per grid cell. Can I do this using the Grid Index Feature? What are the parameters to enter for width and height?

Hi Scott, 

It should work, the parameters I guess would be 1 mile wide and 1 mile high.

Create fishnet and generate tesselation should also do the job, with generate tesselation allowing you to specify an area.

Ensure you are in a projected coordinate system.

Thanks for the reply David!

I figured out a way to generate what I wanted with the Grid Index Feature geoprocessing tool.
