I am using ArcGIS 10.2.2 to make a single raster which shows the year since the last fire in an area based on the MODIS Maryland University raster layers.
I have 15 raster layers all from a different year (2000-20015). Currently each burn is classified as 1 for burnt and 0 for unburnt within each layer.
Firstly, I though I could reclassify each layer by its year (2000-2015). Then, using a tool, perhaps using raster calculator, to take the most recent fire pixel and make that into a raster with 16 cats (one for each year and for burnt areas)? Does anybody know a simple why to do this?
