MERGING POLYGONS

Whether it’s a critical board room presentation or for an important prospect marketing event, there are times you need to put your best foot forward. When unnecessary boundaries between automatically created polygons are removed, the information is presented more clearly and more impactfully.

Before Merging Polygons

This example is taken from an area, which is comprised entirely of government resurvey lots, each of which has its own polygon and text label. For clarity, we have not shown the lessee interests in this example because they would obscure the tract outlines. When we manually merge polygons based on Lease Number, the same area looks like this.



After Merging Polygons

Notice how all the small polygons have been combined into larger ones based on lease number and how the small confusing polygons and all their text labels have been distilled into one label per lease. Notice too that the merged polygons can cross section lines. Keep in mind that manually merging polygons will affect all future imports of lease information and will have to be manually adjusted if a future lease contains different lands.
