I have a shapefile of points with 16 fields associated with each point - these four fields are Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4 (quadrants). Each quadrant field contains a value that represents a distance from each point in nautical miles.
For example I have a lat/lon point with values:
Q1 = 10,
Q2 = 20,
Q3 = 30,
Q4 = 20,
So one point, with 4 rays (one in each quadrant) a Q# distance away from the point, and I want to calculate a round-ish polygon around the point based on these 4 distances.
I need to do this programmatically hopefully using arcpy, numpy, or some other python module.
I was thinking to use the degree-distance tool on arcmap, but I beleive that can only be done by "point and click" and not by an arcpy tool.
