I have a point layer of known landslide locations, and a raster layer (30m) of vegetation cover (categorical). My goal is to extract the prevailing raster value around the point locations.
Almost all landslides are located within 30m of a road which means that if I use the "extract value to point' tool, my out put would only correspond to the raster class "Developed-Roads". This is not helpful since I need to look at cells further away from the road in order to obtain "true" vegetation values like "Tree Cover >= 70 and < 80%", for instance. I can't create buffers around the point locations and run zonal statistics, because there is too much overlap.
When I researched this problem, I also came across the "focal statistics" tool, but I don't see how that is helpful. Even though the tool allows you to define various neighborhoods that would certainly be an advantage, it doesn't allow me to input a point feature and a raster layer at the same time.
Can I use focal statistics, if so how? If not, what other options are there?
