I would like to perform a spatial join using a (non-existent) "contains part of" match option. i.e. I want the join to include any and all polygons that overlap, not just touch at the edge. None of the match options available produces satisfactory results.
To clarify, in the example below, the yellow polygon should have a join count of 4 (A, B, C, D).
INTERSECT gives a join count of 6 (A - F)
The result I am interested in is the the join count per polygon
Any ideas for a work around or is there another tool that will do this?
