I am looking for a way to split features based on a mask. The end goal is the deleting of the features within the mask, without creating an output.
The polygons are bigger than my intented mask, but I just need to delete the area within the mask. Therefor I cannot delete based on location or attribute. By splitting these polyongs based on the mask, I can then select them and delete them. Afterwards I want to "paste" new data in the deleted area.
I am looking for a way to do this within modelbuilder or Arcpy, though my knowledge of Arcpy is beginner at best.
I am using ArcGis 10.3.1.
