I have a polygon grid file and want to clip my raster imagery to the shapes outlined by it. I am using arcmap and was wondering if there was a tool directly for this? I would like to also be able to name each resulting raster for the polygon feature it was clipped to.
I would use model builder for this. Use the feature iterator to cycle through each polygon and feed that into the clip raster tool. You would use in-line variable substitution to pass the polygon ID or unique name you used in the iterator to the output name of your new clipped raster.
Here is the model:
If you don't know anything about model builder, time to read the Help file!
Split raster does this, even keeps polygon geometry
it chops single raster into bits and uses polygon geometry. Output base name is updated by seq.number, as always it is a 'bad' numbering i.e. image1, image2 etc while it should be image01, image02 etc if number of polygons > 9 and < 100. Would be helpful with sorting by name. Apart from this - great tool
These 3 are different rasters chopped from a big one:
