I am using arcmap 10.2 . I need to find out the depth at the node points of my "point" shapefile. For this, i have tried using extract multivalues from points(Spatial Analyst).I had a .csv Events file as input point feature and bathymetry file as raster feature but it fails with an error message:

output point feature "empty"

Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

    Please edit your question to include your ArcMap version, the full error message, and the inputs you used with Extract multi values. – Midavalo Sep 22 '16 at 19:36
  • Do the points and the raster share the same spatial reference system? Most vector/raster operations require that those data share the same spatial reference system. – GBG Sep 22 '16 at 20:35

The multivalue to point tool adds a field to the existing point data set. Since this is an event layer it can't do that. You can either export your points to a standalone layer and run the tool on that or use the value to point tool (runs on a single raster and creates an exported point file), but I find that tool is flakey. Stick with the multivalue tool and use it on a shapefile.
