Can someone recommend a good tool for ArcGIS that would help summarize how many acres of a polygon feature occur within each parcel in a separate layer.
I have a layer containing a few hundred parcels stored as polygon features. Each parcel feature has an APN, calculated acreage, owner name/contact info, and a few other attributes. In a second layer, I have approximately 5000 smaller polygons with a five column attribute table. I need to figure out how many acres of each of those attribute values occur within each parcel. The issue is that the smaller parcels can potentially overlap multiple parcels.
Is there a tool that would be able to easily summarize this data for me? I'm envisioning something that slices those 5000 into separate polygons where they overlap a parcel boundary.
I've been learning on ArcGIS 10.2, but have QGIS installed on the computer if this would be easier in that program.
