I am neither sure if what I am trying to do is super obvious or actually impossible. And since I am very desperate because I cant seem so be able to move it along. Here I go:
I have Layer (.lyr) file from Oak Ridge National Library Landscape (attached below) which contains data points and a corresponding scale for density. I want to cluster around the Nile River in Sudan in order to see how urbanization and overall population density changed from one specific year to the next.
However, I am unable to convert the layer file to a shape file as it gives me this window when I try to export it:
Do you guys have any idea how I could be able to cluster such a file as in this case?
Thank you in advance,
All the best,
It looks like you have a .lyr file of raster imagery. You would need to get the raw imagery (i.e. TIF, IMG). You could then convert this to a polygon or point feature class using the Raster to Polygon or Raster to Point tools.
Once you have a polygon/point feature class, you can execute the Optimized Hot Spot tool.
