In ArcMap, I have a raster layer representing site locations. I derived elevations values for the sites from a DEM. Now want stats on distribution of elevation values at those sites. How can I do this?


you can use zonal histogram for this if you have Saptial Analyst licence. Just make sure that you select a raster size of the size of your DEM, because the default value is often too large.

I would suggest zonal stats as table that will create a suite of basic statistics for your sites. The sites can be vector or raster.


Thanks. I ended up using Get Raster Properties: http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/0017/0017000000m7000000.htm
