I have an excel document with a center point and different distances in different directions from this center point.  Anyone have an idea on how to graph this in Excel (showing the final points of the "distances" - showing each degree)

thanks in advance Excel-Angle-Fix-WORKS-.xlsx

I don't understand the structure of your sheet. But if you can calculate the 'normal' x and y coordinates for you point you can use a Macro to draw the lines as you want them. See the sheet Draw in the sample file. If you run the macro DrawLines the lines are drawn on the sheet.

But since they seem to be GPS coordinates wouldn't it be nicer to draw them on a Binq/Google/Yahoo map.
