I have a polygon layer (A) containing several different land use types (road, building, etc). I also have a different GIS layer (B), a raster of NLCD land use/land cover. I would like to sum/calculate the area of certain attributes in A (say roads) within each grid cell of B, to use in a comparison. Both layers are in the same projection.
How does one go about doing this in ArcMap?
Edit: Here are pics to help understand:
The polygon layer:
The polygon attribute table:
The raster layer sitting on top of the area of interest:
The end result I desire is another raster, with the same footprint as my red/pink raster, that has a value of the area of the 'road' polygon within each grid cell.
