Subject merge polygons by touching and attribute identity 
Author przemus gedziorek

Message I've got a polygon layer which contains a lot of objects with area below requirement. My aim is to merge this polygons to its neigbours with the same one attribute (for example attribute: value). So my merge operation must regard to two condition: touching boundary and one chosen attribute identity. It is easy to do with GeoMedia tool: analytical merge. But the problem is, that my small polygons touch few another polygons with the same attribute and the crux is to merge one to this neighbour which has the biggest area from environs. Do you know how can I deal with this task with ArcGIS desktop?

greetings

Message Thanks for reply. Indeed it looks very simple and effective. But it is only half of succes, because with this method I merge all polygons that are in neigbourhood. Whereas I want to merge only that belows particular area to one the biggest neigbour. Is it possible with ArcGis?
