ArcMap 10.1 here. I have a raster set I'm looking to reclassify. The field I need to re-classify is currently a string of words like "Thing 1" and "Thing 2" and I'm going to set them to be 1 and 2.
I understand that you can create essentially a table within the reclassify tool, save it, and then use it again in another operation. What type of file is this, and where is it found? I can't find it in windows explorer, but it does show up in arc catalog.
Reason is, I have an excel sheet where all of my "Thing 1"s are matched up with the number I want. Let's assume there are thousands of "Thing 1"s and renumbering them within the reclass window would be impractical.
Is there a way to (A) edit a reclass table within excel (b) have arcmap reclass tool read in my excel, dbf, csv, or some other kind of file?
Thanks for thoughts, suggestions
