I have lots of building polygons in my parcels. Each with individual attributes. I want to select for each parcel the building polygon with the highest value from one field. How can I accomplish this in ArcGIS Desktop.

  • I'm not exactly sure what this is doing, but it is not working. For better understanding: I have layer 1 with my parcels and layer 2 with my buildings. For each parcel in layer 1 I want to select the building from layer 2 with the max value of field z of all the polygons in that specific parcel. – aldec Feb 11 '18 at 10:28
