Ok, I guess this should be not too hard, but I can't figure it out:
I have a layer "A" resulting from a layer "0" which was intersected with itself. So layer "A" contains all intersects.
The relevant columns in the table are: "Value" and "ShapeArea" I can see which features(polygons) in "A" are matching with each other as they have the same Shape_Area. The Intersecting parts have (sometimes) different values in the field "Value" However, what I need are not both intersecting features (polygons) but only the one with the higher value.
And also I not only have intersections containing 2 polygons but sometimes 3 or more.
As there are 2000 features in the table I can't select them manual...
So in the example in the picture: Objectid 1 and 2 --> I would only need one of them (which one is not relevant as they have th same value) Objectid 3 and 4 --> I need Objectid 3 as the value is higher
As a side note I wonder why you can intersect a layer with itself but you can't merge a layer with itself so you could use the combining rules...
