Since I am not doing challenges in a chronological order this one was quick as I already did something similar in one of the later challenges.

 

@Laurap1228, I think that's a good question as what is the best way to check results with spatial challenges. In this particular challenge if the splatters with area <2sq.mi is not filtered out, the shape of the built polygon looks the same as the shape of the output polygon. So I used Spatial info tool to compare the area between the output polygon and the one I got, which I think is a sufficient check for this challenge.

Great challenge - I now know how to detect holes in polygons :)

Fun! Love learning these tiny nuances of the spatial tools.

Spatial is fun to mess around with and actually get some use cases for the widgets

This was fun!  Got to use some spatial tools that I hardly ever use.

Pretty similar to everyone else. Took me a while to notice the difference between "Regions" and "Detailed Regions"
