I have some SRTM data which was converted to dted file with GlobalMapper or ArcMap ascii to raster. I want to extract raster from vector with an easy way. I have tried "extract by mask" method but it depends raster files for i/o.

Do you know any easy way of extracting a raster?

A section is raster file B section is vector file.

B section is what i want to extract from A Raster File.

In ArcGis 10 you can use the Clip (data management) tool to do what you ask for. In the input options, you can specify the clipping_geometry option to clip the input raster to a polygon.

  • thank you. with checking "Use Input Features for Clipping Geometry(optional)" solves the problem... and Spatial Analyst Tools > Extraction > Extract by Mask option is another alternative....
