Round Up

Available with Spatial Analyst license.

Available with Image Analyst license.

Summary

Returns the next higher integer value, just represented as a floating point, for each cell in a raster.

OutRas = RoundUp(InRas1)

Usage

  • Input values can be positive or negative.

  • The output raster from this tool is always floating-point type, regardless of the input value type.

  • If the input number has any values to the right of the decimal point, the output will be assigned the next higher integer value, but will be represented as a floating point number with no decimal portion. For example:

       Input   Output
        5.3     6.0
        4.9     5.0
        3.0     3.0
        6.5     7.0
       -0.2     0.0
       -2.8    -2.0
  • See Analysis environments and Spatial Analyst for additional details on the geoprocessing environments that apply to this tool.

Syntax

RoundUp (in_raster_or_constant)
ParameterExplanationData Type
in_raster_or_constant

The input values to be rounded up.

In order to use a number as an input for this parameter, the cell size and extent must first be set in the environment.

Raster Layer; Constant

Return Value

NameExplanationData Type
out_raster

The output raster.

The cell values are the result of rounding up the input values.

Code sample

RoundUp example 1 (Python window)

This example rounds the values in the input raster to the next higher integer value and outputs a floating-point raster.

import arcpy
from arcpy import env
from arcpy.sa import *
env.workspace = "C:/sapyexamples/data"
outRoundUp = RoundUp("gwhead")
outRoundUp.save("C:/sapyexamples/output/outru")
RoundUp example 2 (stand-alone script)

This example rounds the values in the input raster to the next higher integer value and outputs a floating-point raster.

# Name: RoundUp_Ex_02.py
# Description: Returns the next higher whole number for each cell
#              in a raster
# Requirements: Spatial Analyst Extension

# Import system modules
import arcpy
from arcpy import env
from arcpy.sa import *

# Set environment settings
env.workspace = "C:/sapyexamples/data"

# Set local variables
inRaster = "gwhead"

# Execute RoundUp
outRoundURaster = RoundUp(inRaster)

# Save the output 
outRoundURaster.save("C:/sapyexamples/output/outroundup")
