Extract raster data to points?  Intersect funtion?

Discussion created by chagan02 on May 29, 2014

Three questions:
1.  Can I create a raster dataset from a point shapefile or a CSV in the API?  If so, where do I start?
2.  Is there a method such as "Extract data from points" like in Arcmap for the API?
3.  Is there an intersect tool?

I have a dataset, and a polygon shapefile.  I need to be able to interpolate the dataset, and somehow apply the correct data from the dataset to the apporiate shape that lies underneath from the polygon shapefile.

Thanks in advance!
