Is there a way to draw a polygon with a fixed area in ArcMap? For example, I'm trying to create a 40,000 foot boundary around a feature, but the boundary does not have to be any specific length or width.
Calculate a square that meets your perimeter length or area requirement, then create a circle buffer where buffer distance = len/2 Convert the circle to envelope and that will create the square.
In this case your square will be 200 ft on each side
- If your features are poly or line geometry then convert features to point
- Create a 100 ft buffer from each feature.
- Input your newly created buffers into the Feature Envelope to Polygon tool
