Hello i have a point and i want to create polylines for every 5o from 180o to 360o (north azimuth). How can i do that with azimuth and bearings?

if you want geodesic line features, check the help top here on distance and bearing

Here's how you can automate this with arcpy geometry objects:

>>> import math >>> length = 100000 >>> lines = [] >>> degrees = 5 >>> with arcpy.da.SearchCursor("YOUR_POINT_LAYER_NAME_HERE","SHAPE@") as cursor: ... for row in cursor: ... for i in range(360/degrees): ... dx = math.cos(math.radians(i*degrees))*length ... dy = math.sin(math.radians(i*degrees))*length ... startPoint = row[0].centroid ... endPoint = arcpy.Point(row[0].centroid.X+dx,row[0].centroid.Y+dy) ... line = arcpy.Polyline(arcpy.Array([startPoint,endPoint])) ... lines.append(line) ... >>> arcpy.CopyFeatures_management(lines,'in_memory\lines')

edit: I just read the point about limiting between 180 and 360. This can be incorporated into the above script.
