I’m new to working on automating processes with GIS data and I’m trying to come up with a solution in ArcMap that will automate merging polygons that have “Shape Area < 25” into larger polygons. I would like to merge it with the largest polygon that it is touching. I know dissolve is one solution to use to automate merging but in my case it would not work because the polygons that I’m working with are kind of in a grid pattern which needs to be retained. I would like to use a merge function similar to manually merging data via editor.
Does anyone know of a way using ModelBuilder?
Picture is an example so you can see what I’m trying to accomplish:
