The ArcGIS Image Analyst extension provides a rich suite of raster functions in ArcGIS Pro.

Raster functions

A large number of raster functions is provided with the Image Analyst extension. These functions are grouped into categories of related functionality in the following tables. Each function is linked within the table to a detailed description.

Classification functions

The following functions are found in the Classification raster function category. Use the segmentation and classification functions to prepare segmented rasters or pixel-based raster datasets to use in creating classified raster datasets.

Function Description
