I am attempting to create a new, weighted raster from the combination of a regional DEM and a polygon shapefile. I've attached an image - the DEM is the background - the red/yellow region -- and the black polygons are from the shapefile.
What I am attempting to achieve is a new raster where the cell values represented by the polygons are 1 and everything else is zero. I would like the new raster to have the same extent as the original DEM.
I've tried a few approaches, using Clip to "cut" out the polygons and then Raster Calculator Con function to set various cells to zero but it seems very convoluted. Wondering if there is a cleaner approach?
Thanks in advance.
