I am performing parcel analysis that requires the removal of parcel sections that do not meet a minimum contiguous area requirement of 300 square feet (able to have a 300x300ft square pass through it). Is there a way to identify and remove these parcel sections, or "thin strips", that do not meet this requirement? See attached photo for clarification.
I did run repair geometry before applying the buffer, but to no avail.
I ran a negative buffer on the county boundary using the same units as a test, and this worked fine. It doesn't seem to be the file name or location, rather the outputs.
I did a test run buffer of -1 feet, which worked, followed by another test run of -10 feet, which also worked. I'm wondering if the strategy will be to run the buffer incrementally until I reach the desired size?
You have been a great help, Dan. I believe I have found a work-around to the negative buffer issue by: converting polygons to polylines, buffering those polylines by the amount needed in the negative buffer (212ft), and then performing an erase on the polygon layer with the polyline buffer layer. This seems to have done the trick.
Dan and Xander were a big part of How to find the maximum rectangle contained within a polygon. This seems to be a bit more common in raster/image processing than vector processing. pogam · GitHub synthesized some ideas from a few years ago on StackExchange, and created GitHub - pogam/ExtractRect: find the largest rectangle inscribed in a non-convex polygon .
