I have two rasters: a flood inundation raster (depth grid) and a census grid. I would like to know how many people are affected at 0-1 feet, 1-3 feet, 3-6 feet, 6-9 feet, and more than 9 feet. I need to figure out how many are effected in each class (a count). What tool(s) do I need to use? Do I need to convert one (or both) rasters to a polygon? Thanks in advance!
will give you all the combinations. You have integer rasters and they are classified..
If your population isn't in classes, then
might do it
You should do the conversion to raster explicitly because you will need to establish the cell size, processing extent and set your snap raster (to the existing raster extent)
In addition to what Dan mentions, if your population is expressed as density you will need to convert the density to number of people using the area of overlap. If they are absolute values, use the fraction of overlap to get the correct number of people.
