I am trying to select polyline features which lie on raster cells that are above a given threshold value. The raster cells are valued from 3-9 and I want to select the polylines that lie on cells valued at 6 or higher. The only way that I can think of to do this is to decide the threshold, in my case 6, and then selected the cells above the value. Then convert the result to a vector, do a "select by location" to find all the polylines that are completely within a polygon with the value = 1However, when I try to use ArcScan to export the selection to a new layer, the Arcscan toolbar isn't active.
Can anyone help me or have a better idea on how to select the features using raster data?
I am trying to select polyline features which lie on raster cells that are above a given threshold value.
What I need to do requires the same process, but other than converting to polygon the chosen threshold isolated through a 'reclass', followed by the Intersect tool, I'm no further. It all feels a little clumsy.
It is a shame there's no facility in the Intersect tool that allows you to read raster's and choose a classification threshold of some sort. It would reduce the processing stages in py script if a more efficient method exists.
