I have a raster (5km pixel side) and I want to create a shapefile of points, one point per pixel (like a centroid), each point carring the correspondent pixel value. I run "RasterToPoint"tool in ArcGIS and it generate millions of points (cannot understand why). Does someone have aclue on how to proceed?

Problem was that the raster was the output of the "zonal statistics tool", where I used a 5x5km vector grid as reference. I thought the raster was automatically resampled at 5x5km pixel size, but it was not. Basically it was 30x30m pixel size and this is why I got such a huge amount of points.
