I am attempting to calculate the areas of a large number of shapefiles (all polygons) in ArcGIS 10.2.
All of the separate shapefiles are stored in the same group layer, and each contains one polygon that needs to have its area calculated. The actual .shp/.dbf, etc. files are all stored in the same folder. It would be best if the areas could be tabulated into one .csv after being calculated. I have considered using the "Calculate Area" tool in the Spatial Statistics toolbox along with an iterator, although I am not proficient enough with model builder and iterators to get it to work. I can go through and do each shapefile's polygon individually, but there has to be a faster way.
