I am trying to use the "Tabulate Area 2" tool in the following update:
I have overlapping polygons in which I'd like to calculate the area of lake coverage, hence why the original "Tabulate Area" will not work.
Here is a picture of the output table when I run "Tabulate Area 2":
The feature zone is working fine, using the ID column I am inputting, but the feature class is using ObjectID and not using any other attribute, see the example below:
The areas that it is calculating are not in metres, I think they are in decimal degrees.
How can I change the class field the "Tabulate Area 2" tool is using for my feature class? and How can I make this tool calculate area in metres?
I am using ArcGIS 10.1 with an ArcView license.
