I am using ArcGIS Desktop 10.4.1 to do my analysis.
I have a statewide dataset of plant community polygons identified by plant community type. I want to calculate the total acreage of each specific plant community type and export this information to a .csv table, with column 1 identifying each plant community type and column two identifying the total acreage.
I then want to calculate the acreage of each plant community type at smaller regional scales and export this data into column 3,4,5,... with the partial regional plant communities aligning with the originally exported statewide plant community rows regardless if the plant community doesn't exist in that region.
What is the process that I would take to make this happen?
