Buffered Polygon

Discussion created by sercanmetu on Mar 27, 2012
I want to create an 270 degree buffered arc in arcmap so that distortion of the map can be compansated. When i use Buffer tool it works fine but i do not want to buffer a polygon.

To achieve my goal i used haversine distance formula so� that each point far from center can be calculated. It worked fine when arc in (-180 180 -90 90) extent. But when a point
overflow it works wrong.

for(int i = 0 ; i < 270 ; i++)
find new point (i,distance = radius)

How can i handle this cituation.My question is can i write my own buffer tool according to my need by using haversine formula?

Thanks in advance.
