I have a tax map that uses polygons to represent parcels. The attribute table that is associated with the parcel polygons contains a field for zoning codes.
My delima is that I have a number of parcels that have more than one zoning code(e.g., one part of a parcel could have a zone for commercial use and one zone for single family residents).
The way I have been working around this situation is by duplicating the parcel polygon layer and creating a new feature class called zoning. I locate the parcels that have split zones and edit the parcel polygon by splitting the polygon where the zone boundaries occur.
Is there a method I could use that would allow me to manage the zoning codes without duplicating the parcel polygon layer?
