I have a single band raster. When I use the information select tool I can see pixel values. I also have a shape file made up of points sitting over the raster. I want to extract the pixel values from the raster and have those values assigned to each point. I am using Extract values to Point in Arcmap 10.1. The tool says it runs correctly and the output has a RASTERVALU column added. However all the values are zero, when they should be in the 800s.

  • Are the spatial references compatible? – Michael Stimson Oct 30 '14 at 3:46
  • Thank you Michael. That seems to be the problem. For some reason my point file had lost its reference (although it was still mapping correctly). Starting with a new point file allows the Extract values tool to work. Thanks again. – Martin P Oct 30 '14 at 3:55
