Is there a way to adjust centroids/points by a distance and direction? Ideally without messing with trig formulas and converting coordinates to miles?
Say I have a data set of coordinates (latitude and longitude) and I want to move each one East by 1 mile, or another specified distance and direction. I can't find anything within the spatial tools or formulas to do that, but it seems like it should be simple. I suspect I'm missing an obvious solution here!
So in this example I'd want my input and output to be something like the attached, where the point(s) were being adjusted by X miles in Y direction.
