I have three shapefiles of building footprints for a city. Each shapefile has a field called "Status" with attributes 1, 2, or 3. For example:
- Shapefile A, Polygon 1 = 1
- Shapefile B, Polygon 1 = 2
- Shapefile C, Polygon 1 = 1
Is there a way to merge the three shapefiles together based on the field attributes, so that Shp A and Shp C will be one, but not include Shp B?
In the end I only want one shapefile (let's call this Shp D) where only the polygons that has the same attribute across Shp A, B, and C to be included. In the example above, since Shp B Polygon 1 doesn't equal the same as Shp A Polygon 1 and Shp C Polygon 1, I do not want it in the new shapefile (Shp D).
