maximum output size for MLClassify

Discussion created by mwbeckumn on Jun 29, 2011

I am using the maximum likelihood classification tool in spatial analyst to classify GRID layers.  The process works fine except in cases where the GRID layers are 'large'.  In these cases the following error is returned:

ERROR 010097: Unable to create the output of more than 536868864 cells. MLClassify failed!

Is there some way to change the maximum allowed output size in the environment settings?  Or is there another solution that might work?  I am using ArcMap 9.3 with the most current service pack, Windows 7.
