I performed the difference between two images, 2010-2000, with the command in Arcmap10: Image Analysis and raster difference,based on the pixel value difference in the two image tables (2010, 2000). The pixel value in each image represents the land cover aggregated class, with 6 class at all, and I need to represent the change value in the table of the output image as a combination of the single values in the two original images, ex: image 2000 pixel value=1; image 2010 pixel value=3, the pixel value of the output image should be: value= 13, which means that the land cover classes changed from 1 in 2000 to 3 in 2010.

How can I remap the pixel value in the output table like that?

    This is basic raster calculator raster1*10+raster2, but what you really need is Combine tool. Run it and you'll see what it does

If you need to deal with NoData pixels you could use the Raster Calculator Tool and enter the following expression :

Con(IsNull("Raster2000"),0,"Raster2000" * 10) +  

That would create an output of all possible land use change combinations including the pixels that changed from NoData to a land use and vice versa.

  • Many thanks, I will try the formula with Raster calculator tool. Sep 21, 2016 at 8:46
  • Glad I could help!
