MapMerger precisely aligns features in two overlapping maps by ensuring that matching items share the same geometry. The common approach to aligning geographic information system maps involves rubber-sheeting one map onto the other. A much more exact alignment is achievable by ensuring that overlapping features share the same geometry. This also allows users to precisely align polygon boundaries with a road layer.
Example: The U.S. Forest Service would like their forest tract boundaries to precisely align with roads. MapMerger replaced portions of the forest tract boundaries that align with roads with their matching road geometry. This is an exact alignment because the polygon boundaries and roads that align are represented with the same geometry.
MapMerger brings maps into alignment precisely and efficiently.
