I have a polygon feature with different names for each polygon
I have a habitat raster layer with a bunch of classifications (this is clipped to all the polygons above)
I want to run statistics on the Habitat layer where it falls inside the polygon layer, its already clipped so we're good there.
Result: I am looking for the polygon feature name with the statistics of each habitat type and their sum in that polygon
Polygon Trees Water developed
Polygon x 50 21 55
Polygon z 152 66 88
ANY IDEAS on how to do this?
This would normally involve a intersect or union of the inputs, then a summary of the output.
Have you looked here (this for v10.3x):
An overview of the Analysis toolbox—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop
Overlay analysis approaches—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop
An overview of the Overlay toolset—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop
since you mention ... raster... you could convert your polygon layer to a raster and use Combine—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop
which will give you the unique combinations of your classes between 2 or more rasters. The cell counts will give you the areas of intersection of the input variables
I think the Tabulate Area tool under the Zonal Stats toolbox will do the
Tabulate Area basically does the raster analysis that Dan describes.
with the addition of being able to see it, so the choice depends on whether you need just the table or the map and the tabular results...the tables but combine ensures you have the same cell sizes if both the zone and other rasters have the same cell sizes etc.
