I need to create a rectangular feature in ArcGIS Pro that is a representation of a linear tornado path.
I only have the two lat/long coordinates marking the start and points of a line. This straight line is the path the tornado took. I need to ‘expand’ the line into a rectangle such that this path line and its endpoints are the middle and midpoints of the "short" sides of the tornado path rectangle. I also know the width of the tornado path (how wide the rectangle should be). How do I create an exact rectangle based on this info?
I am using ArcGIS Pro 2.5’s editing tools to create the feature in a polygon feature class.
Rather than using editing tools, this could be done with geoprocessioning tools.
