I read the Help Doc on Buffering, regarding distances using Euclidean vs. Geodesic units.
I get the concept.

But where in the Tool is this choice made?
Or was the Help Doc attempting to tell me that it depends on whether the Input Layer is in projected or geographic coordinates? ...If so, that wasn't clear to me.

Thanks for anyone's help.
