I have a layer that contains buffered building footprints and a DTM.

I need to be able to extract the maximum and minimum values of the intersecting DTM for each building footprint.

I've looked and can't find anyway to do this.

i have access to:
ArcView 10
Spatial Analyst 10

a search online seems to point towards using the zonal statistics tool but this will only allow integer or string values where as i need to transfer floating point values.

update: one option appears to be to use "zonal statistics as table" then appending this output table back to the footprints. i think this will work still interested to know if there are any other methods that may also achieve this.
