I have a point shapefile or feature class and I want to create bounding boxes around each point. The size of the bounding box will depend on user input, for example the user might want a bounding box of 50 x 50 meters.
The shapefiles are in WGS 84. This boils down to getting the x/y coordinates of a point x meters away from the existing point to the South East and to the North West (bearing 135 and 315 degrees).
How can I use arcpy to get the x/y coordinates of a point n meters away to the NW and the SE?
