Remove Overlapping

The Remove Overlapping tool provides several methods to remove overlap between two or more trade areas, such as the Thiessen polygon approach and grids (unweighted and weighted).

The image below shows two trade areas overlapping one another. The area in green show the overlap. Using a grid approach, the overlapped section has been removed. The newly shaped territories allow businesses to redistribute customers from once saturated markets to new stores.
