Interpreting Attribute Table of Minimum Bounding Rectangle

Question asked by jhafer on May 4, 2017

New to this... I'm using ArcGIS Desktop 10.4.1 and I'm running some minimum bounding rectangles based on a feature class of points that span several adjacent counties, but I'm having difficulty interpreting the output. The coordinate system of my data frame is WGS 1984 Web Mercator (auxiliary sphere) so I know that the linear unit is based in meters (right?). The results of my rectangle (below) make no sense to me; shape_area is 1 square meter...?
