Guided Tour: Find Overlaps with the Intersection Operation

MPSuperShape can also be used to find overlaps between shapes.

Two overlapping shapes

MPSuperShape's Intersection operation finds the intersection between two or more shapes.

The example to the right has two shapes that overlap. The shapes might be service areas for two different suppliers. The overlapping area would be the possible location for a new business that required services from both suppliers.

The intersection of the overlapping shapes

Here, MPSuperShape's Intersection operation quickly finds the overlapping area. The resulting shape is the area covered by all selected shapes (two in this case).

Next, we look at MPSuperShape's Boundary functionality.
