I am looking for tool to spatial sort polygons in shapefile. Sorting should be done on certain attribute which is more important than others:

  • Polygons with atribute values Ced must be spatially sorted on top, then Bud, Gog and so on. Polygons with values Bid must be spatially sorted on the bottom.

I need this shapefile structure for symbolizing layer in gis software (developed inside company)which does not support symbol levels in cartography as ArcGIS does.

I found 4 tools:

Any other solution?

Can you elaborate on what you mean by "spatially sort?"  It appears to me you are primarily sorting by attribute, e.g. Ced.  Do you want to spatially sort within that attribute?  If so, what spatial attribute of the polygon do you want to sort on?

Sort (Data management) solves the problem  You have to add new column (i.e. Rang). Polygons that I want to be on top, were given value 1, other were given value 2. In Sort tool you choose Rang as field and descending sort method.
