Calculates the tangent of the pixels in a raster.
In mathematics, all trigonometric functions have a defined range of valid input values, called the domain. The output values from each function also have a defined range. For this tool, the domain and range are as follows:
- Domain: -∞ < [in_value] < ∞
- Range: -∞ < [out_value] < ∞
The input values to this tool are interpreted as unitless.
The output raster is always a floating-point type, regardless of the input value type.
The output values from this tool are in radians. If degrees are desired, the resulting raster must be multiplied by the radians-to-degrees conversion factor of 180/pi, or approximately 57.296.
For further assistance, a procedure to follow and some examples of converting output in radians to degrees are available.
Due to the range of values, applying a Histogram Equalized stretch can be useful to best see the results.
The input for which to calculate the tangent values.
Choose which extent should be used in the output raster:
Choose which cell size to use in the output raster. If all the input cell sizes are the same, all the options will yield the same results.
