Offsetting data for pH sensor data anaysis

Discussion created by tgmueller on Jul 20, 2011
I have an on-the-go ph sensor that has about 1 inch between electrodes.  Both electrodes have 1 set of GPS coordinates.  I would like to offset one electrode by a certain distance  X and Y. Is there a way I can do that easily with arcgis.  I like to avoid making changes in excel.

I was playing around and tried reprojecting it to the same coordinates but changing the X-origin just a bit but that doesn't offset the points with a predictable distance predictable way. Anyway have any other ideas.

If there are no easy tools, I will add XY coordinates, add a distance to the x y coordinates for one electrode and then make a new shape file using the adjusted coordinates.
