I have two shapefiles of same extent. One is a shapefile of tree canopy coverage with the area attribute. The other shapefile is 20m*20m grids of the same area, now I have to import the canopy coverage information into the grid shapefile attribute. Note that the canopy coverage is falling in multiple grids but i need to clip out the information falling exactly within the grids.
I have tried with spatial join but the issue is with the canopy sizes the tool uses intersection which is selecting whole canopy layer which is falling in multiple grids. I need to get the clipped area information within each grid.
