I work with ArcMap 10.1.
There is a proposed area for building a dam. I'm just trying to calculate the approximate volume of dam in different elevations.
I created a raster of area and also other several rasters with different fixed elevations (50, 75,100 ...) and tried to calculate cut and fill volume through this order. But after calculation, when I open the attribute table the numbers don't make any sense. I attached the picture of table.
I have these questions:
- Is this even a right way that I've chosen to calculate volume of a reservoir? If it is not how can I calculate it?
- How can I find out what is the unit of numbers that were given in attributes table (cubic meter?, cubic kilometer, 1000cubic meter?, ..)?
