Hello all,

I merely had a question about how do YOU personally deal with a single file that has overlapping polygons?

Do you find a way to automate topology? Do you go in manually? Or do you have a special script/program that deals with this for you?

Thanks,

angel

At the risk of sounding like a broken record...

FME for automatic treatment, Manifold for any manual touch-up that's needed.

:P

But it depends on the data. If it's not supposed to have overlapping polygons, it goes back to whoever supplied it to me.

Haha! Yeah I would love to send it back to the creators! Certainly wasn't me! Thanks
