Question

Is it possible to run a report on overlaps between polygons in Business Analyst Web App?

Answer

It is not possible to run a report on overlaps between polygons at the click of a button. The Add Sites option under the Run Reports tab allows users to add multiple individual polygons, but not run a report on the overlaps.

To run a report on the overlaps, follow the steps described below:

  1. In Business Analyst Web App, open the project with the overlapping polygons.
  2. In the current project pane, select the polygons to display on the map.

    The image below shows two polygons, Trade Area A and Trade Area B, and where a portion of the polygons overlaps.
