Aggregating a raster to fit a polygon grid

Question asked by geonetadmin on Jul 10, 2013

I am working at the scale of 10 sqkm grid cells for the UK, and have a polygon layer of the Ordanance Survey 10k grid cells in ArcGIS.

I have another layer of the human footprint index, also for the entire UK, that I am using to stratify my data.

However, the resolution of this human footprint index is much greater than that of the 10k grid cells, so I want to aggregate the cells, such that I have a human footprint index value for each 10 sqkm cell.

When I try to do this, however, the squares and grid do not line up - as can be seen in the pictures.

They are in the same projection.

Is there any way to aggregate a layer to the confines of a polygon grid?

Any help would be very much appreciated!
