I have a single feature class representing tree canopy over the span of several cities. I want to segment it so that I can calculate the percentage of canopy per census tract. I'm using ArcMap 10.7.1

In other words, I'd like to use the census tracts feature class to "cookie cutter" the single part canopy layer so that I can view it tract by tract. How would I go about doing this?

  • This is it! Tabulate Intersection gave me what I needed. Thank you so much. Jun 6, 2020 at 12:49

Look at the Tabulate Intersection tool

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