An overview of the Bitwise Math toolset

The bitwise math tools compute on the binary representation of the input values.

These tools are intended to work on integer input data. If floating-point values are input, the data values will automatically be truncated and converted to integer values. As a result, the output data type is always integer.

Any bitwise operation on an input NoData cell will result in a NoData cell in the output.

The following table lists the available Bitwise Math tools and provides a brief description of each:

ToolDescription

Bitwise And

Performs a Bitwise And operation on the binary values of two input rasters.

Bitwise Left Shift

Performs a Bitwise Left Shift operation on the binary values of two input rasters.

Bitwise Not

Performs a Bitwise Not (complement) operation on the binary value of an input raster.

Bitwise Or

Performs a Bitwise Or operation on the binary values of two input rasters.

Bitwise Right Shift

Performs a Bitwise Right Shift operation on the binary values of two input rasters.

Bitwise XOr

Performs a Bitwise eXclusive Or operation on the binary values of two input rasters.
