Hi,
I have a bunch of rasters that contain multiple bands. I only want to use a few of the bands from these rasters, but I'm having a hard time extracting them automatically in Python. The only solution I've read online is to use the composite bands tool, but I don't understand how to set up the syntax to extract a single band from a raster; the tool help just states that it can be done but doesn't really explain how. Any advice?

Thanks,
-Scott

Hi Scott,

You can use the 'Copy Raster' tool to extract a single band from a raster dataset.  You just need to specify the band after the raster name.  Ex:

C:\DATA\RASTER\TIFF\aerial2013.tif\Band_1
