I have a raster file (percentage of total forest killed) and a shapefile with polygons (municipalities). I thought as a first step I would like to find out which municipality shows the greatest percentage of forest kills (along with other stats).
So I ran a Zonal Statistics as Table, with the idea that I can join the table after with the polygons, so that I can color them accordingly.
I have done that several times before but I keep having to do the same annoying steps and I wonder if there is a smarter way around it.
All the stats names form the Zonal Statistics as Table output are reserved words and cause the join to fail, so I always have to copy and rename all the fields (min, max, count, sum ..) and delete the old ones. Which is not too bad but I was wondering if someone has figured out a way around this?
I am using ArcMap10
