Intersect in ArcGIS

Computes a geometric intersection of the input features. Features or portions of features which overlap in all layers and/or feature classes will be written to the output Feature class.


  • The Intersect tool calculates the geometric intersection of any number of feature classes and feature layers.
  • This tool will use a tiling process to handle very large datasets for better performance and scalability.
  • All input feature classes and feature layers must have polygon geometry.
  • Attribute values from the input feature classes will be copied to the output feature class.
