This question already has an answer here:

Embarrassed that I haven't looked at this for some time (can't quite get the syntax down). (ArcGIS 10.2, Win7x64).

Within Map Algebra (Raster Calculator) Trying to add the cell values of 3 rasters, each raster has multiple fields. Trying to add: SumRaster = (Raster1, Field X)+ (Raster2, FieldY)+ (Raster3, FieldZ).

Can get to run (using primary VALUE field from each), want to specify FIELD value to SUM.

Alternately would be OK to export each Raster, setting my desired VALUE from this specified Field (and don't remember how to do this in 10.2).

Any help with Syntax would be great.

  • I'd export them to grids and use cell statistics. Lookup is very slow on big rasters – FelixIP Nov 11 '15 at 1:15
  • They actually are grids and fortunately, reasonably small. So very happy that the LOOKUP function worked (plus, it's great to know about). Thanks. – Ecomapman Nov 12 '15 at 1:33

Use the Lookup function:

Lookup("Raster1", "FieldX") + Lookup("Raster2", "FieldY") + Lookup("Raster3", "FieldZ")
  • Excellent! Many thanks! (I've never actually used that, so this'll be most useful).... Appreciate your help. – Ecomapman Nov 11 '15 at 1:09
  • Done.... and thanks again; this was a huge help... and totally did it for me. – Ecomapman Nov 11 '15 at 1:21
