I'm working on creating a wind swath plot for Hurricane Irma. The input data looks like this:
I used the buffer function in ArcMap and used the radius from input file which is in the nautical miles as the distance. But the circle that it creates is abnormally large than the actual storm.
I selected the dissolve all option and the swath was larger. Can anyone suggest how to scale the circles? The following figure is somewhat similar to what I'm trying to draw.
