I have a feature class of land parcels that contain "ownername" and "land_use_code" fields. Some of these features have the same values despite being two different parcels in different locations. For example, two parcels have ownername 'Jon Doe' and land_use_code '1001' but are on opposite sides of a town.

I want to merge those two parcels into a single feature based on those values and any others like that while also keeping all the other fields that are not relevant to the merge. Is there a way to do this for thousands of features at once in ArcGIS Pro?

Dissolve does exactly that:

Aggregates features based on specified attributes.

  • Is there a way to keep the other fields that are not dissolved. The feature class has 5 other fields that I want to keep in the new one. Mar 23, 2021 at 15:32
  • It might work to Spatial join them back. It depends on your data
