I am using and etopo bathymetry raster with various polygon, line, and point layers over it. One of my polygons encompasses the north pole. This polygon automatically created a line within it that runs to the north pole. I have not been able to successfully remove this line using editor, and I am very familiar with editor so I have tried quite a few methods. The point that lies on the north pole that is insists on connecting to shows up as a red square in edit mode.
The real issue:
When I view the map at full extent, a polygon appears to circle the entire edge of the sphere. If I keep the polygon layer filled, the whole map appears as the fill color. When I zoom in enough that the north pole is not visible, this circle goes away. Clearly the circle must correlated to the issue I am having with the north pole polygon.
