I have a raster dataset that is giving a strange answer when I try and fix the projection

"the operation was attempted but the geometry is empty."

2 questions -

how do i attach a raster file here and

can you fix this problem please?

thanks.

A raster doesn't have geometry.

Zip and attach is easiest.

You don't 'fix' a projection.  Do you mean it was defined wrong, and you were trying to correct it using the Define Projection tool? Or were you trying to project a featureclass to a raster.

As for the empty geometry thing, you need to run a Repair Geometry on any featureclass that returns that error, one of the shape's (I will assume polygons for now) is empty or just 'bad'.

Thank you Mr Patterson

It is a raster

Perhaps bad choice of terms

Raster already had define proj due to missing label

So now datum is correct but

I was using raster project

When it gave me this weird response

It is not a feature file

I attached the file

Now what do I do?

I'm using it in a map project w an dem file which is urn zone 17n so it

needs this projection

Perhaps this is clearer.

Thanks for helping.

BUG-000126924: In ArcGIS Desktop 10.7.1, the Project Raster tool ru..   no resolution since it was data specific

There is no attachment.

Specifics on file paths and file names and your parameters used for the tool should be provided.

Tech Support might be your best bet at this stage.
