Using ArcGIS (Map/Catalog) 10.0. I have a raster file (kdens) developed from point data using the kernel density tool. It is 32-bit float file format. I need this file converted to a polygon shapefile. (Note I have used the Math/Times tool to preserve the decimal units in a new raster: kdens100K). Using the copy raster tool, I have specified the output raster to 32-bit unsigned. However, the output raster is identified as a 16-bit signed when I check the raster properties and the raster values are truncated to match the 16-bit value range.
Any insight into to why the output is being formatted to 16-bit signed when I specify 32-bit unsigned?
