Attributing polygons based on the majority (area) class of smaller polygon within it

Question asked by Huggins_D on Nov 7, 2016

I have two shapefiles, one with unclassified polygons representing farms, and one with a smaller spatial scale that represents different crop types. I need to attribute the larger polygons based on the class within it with the greatest area. 

 

I've run an intersect between the two polygons and calculated the area of the resulting data. See below: FID_Unclass is an ID corresponding with every polygon I need classified. Acres is just that. I need to attribute each polygon represented in FID_Unclass with the crop type in "Value" based on the largest area

 

 

Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
