I have little bit problem to generate a geometry based on longitude and latitude. Hope someone can help me. Here I attach a file, where in that file, it have an input sheet (input data) and also output sheet (how the output should be).
The geometry should be polygon. So, I can see the location in a map.
I believe what you're trying to do is achieved by using the Create Points tool, which can be found in the spatial category.
I have attached an image displaying the output using this tool. Just configure the X and Y fields within the tool to match your Latitude/Longitude fields and the tool will generate a centroid for each record which is visible on a map through the browse tool.
Just insert a Select tool after the Create Points tool and rename the Centroid field 'Geometry' to achieve your desired output!
The latitude/longitude within your input is a specific point on a map - thus just generating a point. You can join these together to show one large polygon, or alternatively create a polygon around them with the latitude/longitude at the centre?
This is my best guess as to what you're looking for. After you've created your points as @jakemancer has described, you can also use the Buffer tool to create a circle around that point. You can specify the radius of the circle based upon Miles or Kilometers.
