I've a specific problem in calculating the distance between points and a raster:
I've some sampling points (point layer) and want to measure the distance between a point and
f.ex. the land-use class water (raster layer).
Has anyone a clue how to do this? I'm really stuck in this problem.
Have you ruled out the Euclidean distance tool since the source cell can be a raster or a feature class? If so, maybe you can convert the raster to a feature class to yield polygons then use the Proximity Tools for example the Near tool may be useful or maybe even a simple spatial join ...
Because I've so many informations in the map, I convert the raster to polygon as you suggested and then used the Near Tool.
Thanks very much!
