An overview of the Summarize Data toolset

This toolset contains a tool for calculating statistics for a raster layer within area boundaries that you define.

ToolDescription

Summarize Raster Within

Summarizes a raster based on areas (zones) defined by the first input layer.

For example:

  • Given a layer of watershed areas and an elevation raster layer, calculate the range of elevations within each watershed in order to determine which ones will have the highest energy streamflow.
  • Given a layer of administrative management units and a raster of layer of land use categories, calculate the variety of land use values within each management area to identify the ones that will require the most work to come up with a management plan.
