Spatial Analyst Output Problem

Hello,

I am having problems using numerous spatial analyst tools. When I try to extract by attributes or reclassify a raster file, the output keeps coming out blank. There are no error pop-ups, just an empty output. I included pictures of how the window looks like. The output range of the extracted file is suppose to be between 2500 to 3550, instead the output range is 0.

Thanks

When I look at your second screenshot, I notice that the attribute table does reflect the correct values. The raster in the table of contents is showing the range 0 to 0 erroneously and probably need to have its statistics build explicitly. Try using: Build Pyramids And Statistics—Help | ArcGIS Desktop

Hi Xander,

Thank you for replying. I am new to GIS, so I hope I can be clear. Based on the above picture, the values aren't correct because the values isn't within the 2500-3550 range. So I used Build Pyramids And Statistics in Data Management, I inputted the original denverdem raster file into the tool. Then I used the select by attributes, but this time the attribute table was completely empty.

 I would appreciate it if you can give step by step direction.

Thank You!

If you want the elevations between that range, use the Con tool

Con( (Raster("elev") > 2500 ) & ( Raster("elev") < 4500), "elev", 0)

This portion

(Raster("elev") > 2500 ) & ( Raster("elev") < 4500)

will return a boolean, hence you need to use & instead of AND (if I remember correctly)

The rest of the Con statement basically says if the expression is True, then return the value in the "elev" grid otherwise, 0

Hi Dan,

This is the con window.

Using & doesn't work, when I try to verify the query. Would I put the same raster for both the input conditional raster and input true raster?

Thank you for responding!

You don't put the expression I gave you in the Con tool.

put it in the Raster calculator... and you have to substitute my example grid name for your grid's name

Also... don't work in folders with spaces, especially if you are producing esri grids. (ie rasters without a file extension)

Hi Sadia, 

May I know what version of ArcMap are you using? I tried to repro using my own data in latest version of ArcMap, with the same expression as you did, but it works to me. Or maybe it is data specific.

I will appreciate if you can report your problem to our Technique Support with your detail repro steps, information and data (if possible). So that we can log it and investigate.

Thanks,

Wei

And you also have such problem using Reclassify tool in this data? Can you also show how you did?
