Just a simple question. I would like to use the identify tool for a specific coordinate to get the pixel value. Unfortunately it's not possible to place the cursor that precisely. I used the go to xy tool to set a point but even that doesn't help.

Anybody knows how to solve this?


There's a workflow that I sometimes use for this, but it's not that straight-forward.

Create a point FC and, with the use of F6 manually enter coordinates for the points where you want to extract values from your raster.

Run Extract values to Point on your points and raster (requires Spatial Analyst).

Extracts the cell values of a raster based on a set of point features and records the values in the attribute table of an output feature class.
