I have a land surface temperature raster file and I want the max and min of it.

minLSTresult = arcpy.GetRasterProperties_management(raster_result, "MINIMUM")

minLST = minLSTresult.getOutput(0)

minLST returns u'261.22'. How could I only get the number of it?

  • minLSTresult should return your value. Try print minLSTresult. – F_Kellner Dec 31 '15 at 20:58

That is simply indicating that the value is a Unicode string. You can use this unicode string in most situations. However, if you need to fully control the type, convert it to float format.

test = unicode('261.22')

>>> test
u'261.22'

>>> type(test)
<type 'unicode'>

test2 = float(test)
>>> test2
261.22

>>> type(test2)
<type 'float'>
12

Create a raster object using the full path to your raster. Raster objects have the properties minimum and maximum.

>>> rastFullPath = r"C:\Rasters\rasters.gdb\Slope"
>>> rast = arcpy.Raster (rastFullPath)
>>> rast.minimum
0.0
>>> rast.maximum
64.9616928100586

Or you can use your method and convert the output from unicode to float:

>>> float (arcpy.GetRasterProperties_management (rast, "MAXIMUM").getOutput (0))
64.9616928100586
>>> float (arcpy.GetRasterProperties_management (rast, "MINIMUM").getOutput (0))
0.0
