Extract data from multidimensional raster to points.

I have a number of NetCDF files converted to raster, these contain bands for different times. I also have point data for study locations. I am wanting to extract a value for each of the time layers at each of the point locations. Is there a way to do this? Multipoint to value only allows me to extract data from one layer of the raster file.

(I don't have a license for 3D analyst if that is where the solution lies).

Do you have the spatial analyst?

I'm looking for the same functionality. Dan's suggestion, which I've tried, doesn't work for multidimensional rasters.

Anyone got a solution?

I had the same problem and I could solve it as follows:

1- Create  a Multidimensional raster layer with the netcdf data and a point shapefile.

2-Through Catalog, create a geodatabase and inside it create a mosaic raster.

3-Add your Multidimensional raster layer to the mosaic.

4-Use sample tool to cross the mosaic and your points shapefile.

5-Right click on your points shapefile and make a join with the output from point 4, which should be a table (beware with your primary key).

6-Go to the attribute table of your point shapefile and confirm that everything is ok.


I hope this helps 🙂

Interesting that the tool only works with shape file. My points as a feature class did not work ...
