I have a shapefile with some polygons,I need to compare these polygons with another set of polygons in another shapefile and see if the second are larger in AT LEAST one direction.
How can I do it?
I'm using Arcmap in the trial version for the moment
As you can see, I have a set of yellow polygons that have to be compared with the blue ones (that are several and of really different dimensions): I need to know for each yellow polygon if the blue polygon that contain his centroid is TOTALLY included in the yellow one or is larger for at least one direction
- Case 1: the blue is greater than the yellow
- Case 2: the blue is smaller than the yellow
- Case 3: the blue is greater than the yelloe in one direction (so for my purpose it's greater
I need to refer to the polygons in which the centroid fall, because the blue are consecutive (as you can see from the previous image) and the yellow can exceed in another one.
