neighborhood statistics for thermal imagery from a river

Discussion created by tnelliott on Jan 29, 2011
I have some thermal imagery of a river, and I want to be able to create longitudinal profiles of average, min, max, and standard deviation of the raster values. I thought a moving window that moved downstream following the river centerline would be good. The idea would be to calculate the desired statistics for a series of narrow rectangles, spanning the river width and perpendicular to the centerline, maybe 10 meters or so in length along the centerline. I haven't been able to find anything, does anyone have any suggestions?
