dtToolAreaJoin Polygon Join

Deletes the boundary line between two polygons and create a new polygon. Once you selected the boundary line between the polygons DigiTerra Explorer opens the Area join panel to select which attribute data record you want to store to the new polygon. Please, note that all geometry based data field will be recalculated in the new polygon's data record. The boundary line can be selected when the identify button turned on for the edited layer in the Layers panel.


Tap / Left click: selects boundary line.

Drag:  selects boundary line (drags selection point) on the map with displayed crosshairs.


The Polygon Join remains active until another tool is activated.
