I have a simple question that I can't seem to find out how to do. I have 2 shapefiles:
- All US Counties
- EcoRegions in the US
I need to calculate the area of section of County that falls within each EcoRegion polygon, take the highest percentage, and assign the name of the EcoRegion to a field in the County layer.
To simplify things, I've got a screenshot below of one county, with EcoRegions overlaid. The county has a greater percentage in the eastern EcoRegion polygon, so how can I get the name of that EcoRegion into the attribute table of each county polygon?
