I have a delimited polygon. Within this polygon I have a total of X polygons included in the current full/total polygon. These X polygons differs by shape. What I want is to see the overlapping times (something like a repetitive case), in order to interpolate the polygons.

My idea is to apply a grid (X*Y meters/kilometers) needed to see how many times those polygons are present in the grid sections. By applying this grid it should suggest me the polarization of the polygons.

This polygons are limits of the towns influence in matter of public interest.

I've tried with intersect and union geo-processing tools but no result. :(

Can you suggest me any solution (commercial or open-source)?

If you are using ESRI ArcMap, take a look at the Spatial Join function. It will provide the number of "join" counts between the polygon intersections.
