The Reclass tools provide a variety of methods that allow you to reclassify or change input cell values to alternative values.
The most common reasons for reclassifying data are to accomplish the following:
- Replace values based on new information.
- Group certain values.
- Reclassify values to a common scale (for example, for use in a suitability analysis or for creating a cost raster for use in the Distance Accumulation tool).
- Set specific values to NoData or set NoData cells to a value.
There are several approaches to reclassifying your data. The methods of reclassification and the tools that perform them are as follows:
- Individual values. (Lookup, Reclassify)
- Ranges of values. (Reclass by ASCII File, Reclass by Table, Reclassify)
- Intervals. (Slice)
- Continuous values using functions. (Rescale by Function)
The following topics provide background information on the theoretical aspects of the tools as well as some examples of their implementation:
- Learn how to reclass by individual values
- Learn how to reclass by ranges of values
- Learn about reclassification tables
- Learn how to group values into intervals or by area
- Learn how to rescale continuous data using functions
The following table lists the available tools and provides a brief description of each.
Creates a raster by looking up values in another field in the table of the input raster.
Reclassifies (or changes) the values of the input cells of a raster using an ASCII remap file.
Reclassifies (or changes) the values of the input cells of a raster using a remap table.
Reclassifies (or changes) the values in a raster.
Rescales the input raster values by applying a selected transformation function and transforming the resulting values onto a specified continuous evaluation scale.
Slices or reclassifies the range of values of the input cells into zones of equal interval or equal area, or by natural breaks.
