Cost Path Assigned Value

Discussion created by jdobre06 on Jun 15, 2010
I have created cost distance and backlink rasters for 10 locations.  When I run the cost path analysis for each location, some locations are not giving a value of 1 for the 'from' location.  So I ask two questions:

1.  Any ideas as to why the cost path would not be returning a value of 1

2.  Also, is there any way to assign the value to a given point or is this only assigned when the scanning locates a point?
