Is there a way around for me to batch clip a raster using a field name to create output a raster layer ? Much like using Split tool but it is for a vector. How about that for the raster side ?

Going to do that for slope and elevation by 24k quad. I am using ArcGIS 9.3.1 and I am aware that the 10 has a raster split.

You can use Hawth's Analysis Tool's for ArcGIS. It has a Clip Raster By Polygon Tools.

enter image description here


  1. Create a polygon from your raster. Select it as the polygon layer under Input.
  2. Pick the field name that you want to use as the basis for the clip.
  3. Select the original layer as the raster layer.
  4. Choose an output directory.

A warning from the website though:

this tool uses standard Spatial Analyst functionality and is therefore rather slow

I dont know if I really understand what you want to do. But you can make a shapefile and use that as a mask. I hope "Extract by mask" (in spatial analyst) should work.

  • Exactly I am awared of that, but I had to do by indivdiually. How about a batch or model builder ? – PROBERT Oct 13 '11 at 14:16
