I have two polygons that are overlapping each other. I need to calculate the area that's created in between these overlapping polygons. I used the "intersect" tool but it's not giving me the exact area. I used the field calculator function in the attribute table to manually subtract the areas between those two polygons. Is there a way to calculate the area between the overlapping polygons and represent it in a new polygon?
The area of the outer polygon is (red): 9.319671 The area of the inner polygon is (grey): 5.070906 The difference is: 4.248765 (need to represent this area in a new polygon)
The highlighted field in the attribute shows the value I manually calculated using the field calculator function.
