I'd like a methodology that can edit my vector layer, extending and cutting the features in the polygon layer "cap_agricola" within the boundary layer "sp_edr", I would like to solve this problem in ArcGIS, but I can do without restrictions in GRASS or QGIS.

Just use the Erase function in ArcGIS for Desktop (if you have an Advanced license which allows it).


There are two tools within ET GeoWizard for ArcGIS that will give you the result that you are looking for.

  1. Erase
  2. Polygon Global Snap
