I am having the issue where the International Dateline is splitting a polygon I am working with. I have a layer of the "Federal Districts" of Russia, and the eastern most federal district is being "cut" by the international dateline.
I currently have the data frame's coordinate system set to Asia Lambert Conformal Conic and this places the two "cut" polygons next to each other (how they should be). I really need the polygon to not be cut and show as a continuous polygon.
I've researched up and down, tried changing the projection/coordinate system, but with no luck.
I've attached a screenshot of the one multi-part polygon that is being split by the international dateline. I would like it so that there is no cutting of the polygon, and therefore no boundary line going through the polygon.
I've even tried transforming this multi-part polygon into separate, single-part polygons, then merge them back together, but anytime any part of any polygon crosses this line, it gets cut.
