Hi folks -

I'm sure there must be an elegant way to do what I need to do in ArcGIS, but I've not figured it out. 

I have a raster that is composed of two classes.  I want to create multiple 'zones' that are square in shape, about 20 of them.  I want to place them where needed corresponding to certain locations over the original raster (I know how to create these via the editor, if that's the best way).  I then want to ask ARC to tell me the statistics, meaning, the total number of pixels or better yet, the total pixel area, of each class within each zone.  I hope I'm describing this well enough.  How would you go about performing such a task?   Thanks!
