I have a selection of polygons (specifically circles) in one feature class. Some of these overlap, some do not. The feature class is set up as such.
OBJECTID MY_KEY SHAPE_LENGTH SHAPE_AREA 1 1 3141.592654 785398.1634 2 4 3141.592654 785398.1634 3 5 3141.592654 785398.1634 4 8 3141.592654 785398.1634 5 10 3141.592654 785398.1634
Polygons with MY_KEY 4 and MY_KEY 10 overlap. I want to create a new feature class that combines overlapping polygons and also creates a new field that lets me know what polygons have been combined, so I would end up with something like
SHAPE_LENGTH SHAPE_AREA POLYGON_KEY 3141.592654 785398.1634 POLYGON_1 4398.229716 1539380.4 POLYGON_4_10 3141.592654 785398.1634 POLYGON_5 3141.592654 785398.1634 POLYGON_8
I know that dissolve is the tool to use for combining overlapping polygons, but I do not how to achieve separate features for all non-overlapping polygons and obtaining a way to know what polygons have been combined where they do overlap.
How can I achieve this?
