ArcObjects to Buffer a geometry with WGS84 SR using meters units for buffer
The various ArcObjects discussions about IBufferConstruction implies that you can build a buffer around a geometry using geodesic distance. I know it can be performed using Geoprocessing, but my geometries are not in a feature class. My geometries are in WGS84 as a spatial reference (SR). I want to build a buffer around each geometry that is 100 meters. I cannot find sample code. In the past, I have converted the geometry to a UTM spatial reference and buffer in that SR, but my geometries can straddle multiple UTM zones.
Anyone have sample code?
Mapping Center Answer:
We wrote a blog entry on this subject a while back:
Since you have point features and if they are in a geographic coordinate system, they will auromatically be buffered using the geodesic distance.
More info on this topic can also be found in Margaret Maher's recent book published by Esri Press called Lining Up Data in ArcGIS.
