Hi

I am converting point data to raster, so I can merge datasets using MOSAIC. To avoid MOSAIC resampling the raster's I would like the raster files to be aligned. When creating a raster file from point data how can I control the alignment of the raster points?

Thanks

Hi Fay,

If you look at the Help page "Point to Raster (Conversion)" and scroll to the bottom of the page you see "Environments".
Relevant are:
- Extent (here you can define the exact coordinates of the output extent)
- Cell Size (the cell size of the output raster, which is also an option in the Point to Raster dialog)
- Snap Raster (if you already have a raster and want to align it with that raster, set this raster as Snap Raster)

Kind regards,

Xander
