I have a single shapefile full of overlapping polygons. The ArcGIS Union tool will generate individual, non-overlapping polygons with that geometry. Is there a way to do this with GDAL/OGR or another Python library that is not made by ESRI? The ogr.union function in OGR seems to be more like a 'dissolve' in ArcGIS.
