How do I prevent symbology's "Natural Breaks" from automatically changing my range to include multiple 0s after my decimals?

Example: Range was originally 1 - 249. I switched to Natural Breaks and the range is now 1.0000000000 - 250.00000, then 250.0000001 - x. It should be 251.

In Range my counts now have just enough zeros to make both columns have the exact same number of digits and line up perfectly.


As far as I know, there is no way to change this globally. The added decimals are the results of your raster data having a too big precision value.

Nevertheless, removing the decimals from the labels manually per raster layer is quite simple. Click on the Label header, then select the Format Labels.. item. There round down to 0 the number of decimals place, and voilà enter image description here

  • Thank you. That does work for the Labels. I would still like to change the Range to not include 0s. I have used the same data set for other maps and this has never happened. I am also using all whole numbers, so precision was never an issue. Ex. 2852.00001-12287.0000 then 12287.0001-x, I would not know which category the count of 12287 would go into. – WolverineTime Jan 15 '15 at 14:05
