I'm using ArcMap 10.2 and I'm currently trying to clip a county-wide DEM layer (.lyr file) down to a smaller area using a shapefile. The data frame coordinates system is set to US Feet which is what I need. The DEM's coordinate system is in meters and I cannot change that. The shapefile I'm using to clip the DEM I have tried both setting to Meter and to US Feet. I'm using the Extract by Mask tool in the Spatial Analyst > Extraction toolbox. Each time I receive the same error message: Output Raster is listed as "empty" (I do have a workspace set up locally) and the error codes I receive are: 010429, 010213, and 010067. I've looked these up but I know I've gotten this process to work before, I think it's more a coordinate system problem than anything.
Here is the error message I've received each time after trying to extract:
I've found and downloaded a raster/DEM that is in US Feet. I've set the data frame to US Feet, and I've made sure the shapefile to mask is set in US Feet. In the "Extract by Mask" tool window, I went into Environemnts and set the Output Coordinates to match the DEM and the Raster Analysis Cell size to match the DEM. The workspace is local and I've tried decreasing the size of the shapefile I'm using to extract (incase it was just too big). I'm still getting the same three errors. From what I can understand, the first error (010429) seems to indicate that arcmap can't read the DEM layer correctly? It doesn't recognize it somehow? I've downloaded and used DEM's from three different providers so I don't think it's a sourcing issue.
