Aimed to splitting polygon features with polylines or polygons of another feature class.
The “Split Polygons” tool provides ArcGIS users with capabilities to split input polygons into separate polygons using various customizable methods, including splitting polygons by polyline polygon vector layer or graphic layer.
If there is a feature intersecting a polygon, it can be used to split the polygon (for example, if you need to draw forest boundary by road or river).
Vector features by which you wish to split input polygons should actually intersect polygons, otherwise polygons will not be split.
Additional tool options available:
- Use selected features – only selected input and overlay features will be split.
- Use buffer – constant buffer value will be used and the buffer value from the field will be derived.
- Add ID field of the source features – ID field that contains source features ID will be added to the attribute table of output layer. Default ID field name can be changed.
