Multidimensional Analysis geoprocessing functions

Available with Image Analyst license.

Available with Spatial Analyst license.

The Multidimensional Analysis geoprocessing functions allow you to perform various multidimensional analyses on scientific raster data across multiple variables and dimensions.

Multidimensional data represents data captured at multiple times, depths, and heights. This type of data is commonly used in atmospheric, oceanographic, and earth sciences. ArcPy multidimensional analysis geoprocessing functions allow you to work with scientific raster data in multiple formats, including netCDF, HDF, GRIB, the multidimensional mosaic dataset, and Esri's Cloud Raster Format (CRF).

The geoprocessing functions require an ArcGIS Image Analyst extension license.

The geoprocessing functions Aggregate Multidimensional Raster, Dimensional Moving Statistics, and Generate Multidimensional Anomaly are also included in the ArcGIS Spatial Analyst extension.

Geoprocessing functionDescription

Aggregate Multidimensional Raster

Generates a multidimensional raster dataset by combining existing multidimensional raster variables along a dimension.

Analyze Changes Using CCDC

Evaluates changes in pixel values over time using the Continuous Change Detection and Classification (CCDC) method and generates a change analysis raster containing the model results.

Analyze Changes Using LandTrendr

Evaluates changes in pixel values over time using the Landsat-based detection of trends in disturbance and recovery (LandTrendr) method and generates a change analysis raster containing the model results.

Detect Change Using Change Analysis Raster

Generates a raster containing pixel change information using the output change analysis raster from the Analyze Changes Using CCDC tool or the Analyze Changes Using LandTrendr tool.

Dimensional Moving Statistics

Calculates statistics over a moving window on multidimensional data along a specified dimension.

Find Argument Statistics

Extracts the dimension value or band index at which a given statistic is attained for each pixel in a multidimensional or multiband raster.

Generate Multidimensional Anomaly

Computes the anomaly for each slice in an existing multidimensional raster to generate a new multidimensional raster.

Generate Trend Raster

Estimates the trend for each pixel along a dimension for one or more variables in a multidimensional raster.

Predict Using Trend Raster

Computes a forecasted multidimensional raster using the output trend raster from the Generate Trend Raster tool.

Summarize Categorical Raster

Generates a table containing the pixel count for each class, in each slice of an input categorical raster.
