I have created a point --> Figure 1
I have then selected the
Buffer tool and created a buffer around my chosen point, with a degree interval of 0.012. I have selected the
End style cap as square and
run in background. This has produced a buffer around my point
Because I am using WGS84 CRS, I cannot use meters as the chosen map unit, instead I am using degrees and I have to guess a degree to match close to what I want. Does anyone have a solution to this specific problem?
My next problem is that after trial and error is that once created a buffer around the right dimensions they are constantly providing contradictory data.
From the right side it records a distance of 705m until the center, giving a diameter of around 1400m
From the left side it produces a distance to the center point of 1343m until the center and a diameter of around 2700m.
indicates that from corner to corner the distance is almost exactly 3000m.
Can someone please explain to me how buffers work. because I am using the
Buffer tool the way people are telling me too, yet the results from it seem so inaccurate.
