I need to capture some buildings in ArcMap 10.3.

It works fine for perfectly rectangle buildings, but whenever some location has buildings with an angle like a rhomboid then it became very time consuming to first draw a rectangle and then edit its vertices to fit.


In the picture above blue ones are the correct building shape and green one is default rectangle shape. Note the angle difference.

Is there any extension, add-in, by which a user can define an angle first and whenever he makes a rectangle then it automatically edit its vertices to fit that particular angle?

    I think that you will need to write some ArcPy code to do this within ArcMap. – PolyGeo Jul 27 at 7:30
