So I am running the relateobjects module on two of markers so that I can gauge overlap in areas and locations etc. Once I run that I run the measure area module and measure the markers separately as well as from the relate objects module. However what I am finding strange is that the area measured from the relateobjects module is larger than the area of the marker with the smaller area which doesn’t make sense since it means that there is more than the area of marker one being taken into account. It is still smaller than the area of marker 2 but if I understand the relateobjects module correctly, it should be only looking at overlap area between the two markers so the highest it should ever be is 100% of the smallest area marker.
Example: Marker 1 area: 1000, Marker 2 area: 5000, area measured from relateobjects of marker 1 and 2: 3000. So I feel like it shouldn’t be more than 1000 in this case.
Any insight on this would be appreciated.
