Hi fellow members,

I would like to split an irregular polygon into smaller uniform sized polygons i.e dividing a land parcel into many 1sqkm rectangular polygons and leaving the residual polygon as it is.

Is there a script or function that can accomplish this task. I only have ArcGIS Basic and do not have a Parcel Editor extension or anything.

Thanks in advance for pointing me in the right direction.
