I am using ArcGIS 10. I am trying to clip an NLCD layer from a vector polygon. I have used the Clip Raster tool in Data Management and Extract by Mask tool in Spatial Analyst among other things. My problem is that the processing completes without an error message but the image does not appear. I have zoomed to the layer and I have also checked in ArcCatalog.
My initial thought is that your spatial references needs to be synced. Try these troubleshooting ideas:
Also, check the properties of your clipped raster to see if there is actually any data associated with the raster. If all else fails, copy and paste the results onto your post--maybe folks will be able to assess the situation better. Best of luck!
Here is another method to try using the Raster Calculator, which you can find by searching in the Tools for "Raster calculator". In the Environmental Settings of the Raster Calculator, set up the following items:
Then do your clip in the Raster Calculator like so, putting your NLCD raster in the calculator input box (where mine has "NedOneNinthUTMMeters")
This should give you a new raster clipped to the vector polygon.
