I need to create a map layer that contains a large number of features representing mobile phone network cells. The cellsshall  have the form of a circular sector (part of circle enclosed by two radii and arc). My input is a table of some kind with several hundret rows (secors) and columns like (not yet fixed) X/Y center of circle, direction of centerline of sector and radius.

I need to find a way to automate the creation of the sectors, but I have no clue, how to accomplish this.

Any input is greatly appreciated!!!

Thank you, Manfred
