In some instances, a map layer may have gaps between polygon features. The gaps may represent a clear area that exists in a specific region, for example, a deforested area in a forest region. Developers of the area may replant trees in the deforested area with an extent represented by the feature line as shown in the image below.
However, before replanting, developers may require a detailed map with an estimation of the extent to be planted. The gaps between polygons must be filled manually based on the extension of the surrounding polygons, and the features are merged.
The instructions below describe how to fill the gaps between polygons based on the extension of the surrounding polygons.
