Nodata, Combining rasters, and Con statement

Discussion created by romimart on Sep 20, 2013

This might be a simple question, but I don't really know how to answer it.

I need to provide another way to combine a "lakes" grid with a single lake feature "mozingo", besides Con(IsNull(�??lakes�?�), �??mozingo�?�, �??lakes�?�). The lakes grid has no data values so a simple plus operation wont work.
I need help and a clear explanation so that I can understand better.
I think the closest I've come is by converting the lakes grid no data values to 0. But then I'm not sure what to do. Would there be a simpler way to combine the rasters to only give me the existing "lakes" with the "mozingo" lake as well?

Any suggestions?

Thank you!
