When creating a buffer around point features in ArcGIS Pro, the buffer features appear oval instead of circular.
The map data frame is set to a geographic coordinate system (GCS).
Solution or Workaround
Change the coordinate system of the map data frame to a projected coordinate system (PCS).
- In the Contents pane, right-click the map data frame layer > Properties.
- In the Map Properties window, click Coordinate System on the left pane.
- In the XY Coordinate Systems Available section, expand Projected coordinate system.
- Select the appropriate projected coordinate system, and click OK. The buffer features in the map appear circular.
