An overview of the Multidimensional Analysis toolset in Spatial Analyst

Available with Spatial Analyst license.

Available with Image Analyst license.

The Multidimensional Analysis tools allow you to perform analysis on scientific 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. In ArcGIS Pro, you can manage, visualize, and analyze multidimensional raster data in multiple formats including netCDF, HDF, GRIB, the multidimensional mosaic dataset, and Esri's Cloud Raster Format (CRF).

The following table lists the multidimensional analysis tools and provides a brief description of each.


Aggregate Multidimensional Raster

Generates a CRF multidimensional raster dataset by aggregating existing multidimensional dataset variables along a dimension.

Generate Multidimensional Anomaly

Computes the anomaly for each slice in a multidimensional raster to generate a multidimensional dataset.
