I am trying to merge quarter quarter sections of polygons from PLSS into a quarter section.
However, I also want it assigned to correct Township/Range/Section while merging.
I know I can hand merge all of them using the Editing tool, but since I will have to do to the entire state of Kansas.
I was thinking of writing a script to help. The problem is that the Township/Range/Section field in the attribute table is in one field and I don't know how to do that when is all together.
I will need to merge those four polygon that belong to the same Township/Range/Sec/qtr as following:
and I need to leave in 01S01E01NWNW.
