What is the best practice for erasing overlay geometry? My scenario is: I have a polygon layer with 1000 features. i need to create a tool from model builder that select polygons with user defined attributes, and verify if there is any other polygons are overlapping. Then erase the overlay area from overlay polygons.
EX: Polygon A is selected by attributes and polygon B is overlapping with A. Erase overlapping area from B.
I am able to find the overlapping polygons, but when i use Erase tool it is creating new feature class but i need output should be modified with in the same feature class. This is nothing but Clip in Edit toolbar with "Discard the area that intersects".
