I have two layers. Layer 1 has features that are property/parcels with area in acres. Layer 2 has features that are wetlands/bodies of water with area in acres. I want to calculate parcels that have for example 0% wetlands, 10% wetlands, 20% wetlands, 30% wetlands etc. to 100% wetlands.

How can I do this on ArcGIS Desktop?

Ideally, I want to find parcels/properties that have a limited number or a limited percentage of wetland coverage.


You can use the Tabulate Intersection tool:


Computes the intersection between two feature classes and cross-tabulates the area, length, or count of the intersecting features.
