Hi there,
I have a shape-file with 10.000 polygons, some of them have little gaps (0,5 * 0,5 meters). Is there a way/process to fill these gaps automatically?

Thank you in advance, Kai

Does your dataset have larger holes or are they always .5x.5? Do you want to remove ALL holes or just the small ones?

Hi,

the dataset has holes in different sizes, I would like to fill all holes > 1 m².

Best regards, Kai

Sounds like the Eliminate Polygon Part tool will do what you need.

Also, the Union tool with the NO_GAPS option along with a subsequent Dissolve will also fill gaps in polygons.

Thank you very much ,

it worked with the eliminate-tool.
For others: Please be aware to use that tool with data in a file geodatabase; I had some problems (some gaps were not filled) when I used shape-files.
