I have an irregular polygon feature that I need to split into x number of equal area features. I need to be able to have the divisions be something other than north/south or east/west.
The black polygon in this case needs to be divided into 3 equal area polygons. I manually split these, but I need it to be more precise and the splits need to be aligned in parallel to each other. They need to be able to be calculated with an angle/rotation specification, and not just north/south or east/west.
What I have tried:
- This excellent code is the closest I have gotten to splitting an irregular polygon up into equal areas. Unfortunately, it only runs for north/south or east/west lines. I can't figure out how to rotate it and I don't have enough coding experience/time to efficiently edit it for my needs.
- Fishnet Tool (as suggested by this, this, this, and this) and this has an angle of rotation. However, this creates a grid, but not equal areas. Also, it is for the feature extent not shape.
- I cannot use the Parcel Fabrics tool (as suggested by this, this, this, and this) as I don't have the necessary licensing for it.
It really blows my mind that this isn't a tool that exists/is readily available.
Any advice/suggestions is welcomed. Or, if you really want to be a super hero, edit the code so I can specify an angle for rotation. Thank you very much!
