Hi there,

I have two polygon shapefiles: 1 with census tract polygons (block profiles) and another layer with greenspace (polygons).

I am trying to calculate the area of green space within each census tract and assign it as an attribute in the census tract field so I can create a choropleth map.

Any insight on how to do this? I have fooled around with intersect and spatial joins for a few hours but can't seem to make it work.

Thanks,

Daniel

Tabulate Intersection (Analysis)  offered in 10.1 PreRelease will do this for you -- at every license level.  Works great.
