You can also consider removing the island from your dataset. To do that you
need to edit your shapefile. If you have access to ArcGIS 8.3 (ESRI), you
can start editing (in editor extension) and choose modify features. Click
on the island, click delete (once it is highlighted), it will disappear,
save your editing, and end the session. After that you will have 47
polygons instead of 48, and no island.
Hope this can help you.
