I am a newbie of python teaching myself using the arcpymanual. I am running a Reclassify script on slope grids. It works fine for the first loop then I get an error message for the remap line. I cannot figure out what the problem is because I copied the syntax from the arcpy manual. Is it due to loop syntax?

Runtime error Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 21, in TypeError: 'RemapRange' object is not callable


import arcpy
from arcpy import env
from arcpy.sa import *

# Set the current workspace
arcpy.env.workspace = r"C:\workspace\rsn\pippi"
# Overwrite pre-existing files
arcpy.env.overwriteOutput = True

# Process: Reclassify

rasters = arcpy.ListRasters("s_*", "GRID")

for raster in rasters:


    outRaster =  r"C:\workspace\rsn\pippi\re_" + raster

    RemapRange = RemapRange([[0, 15, 0], [15, 30, 1], [30, 90, 2]])

    outReclassRr = Reclassify(raster, "Value", RemapRange, "DATA")
    print outReclassRr

Can anyone give any suggestions?

Your variable RemapRange is named the same as the object RemapRange which is not good coding practice. Try renaming that statement to something like:

myRemapRange = RemapRange([[0, 15, 0], [15, 30, 1], [30, 90, 2]])

I would also recommend to place that statement before the for loop since it is static variable and does not need re-created for each image.

rasters = arcpy.ListRasters("s_*", "GRID")
myRemapRange = RemapRange([[0, 15, 0], [15, 30, 1], [30, 90, 2]])
for raster in rasters:
    # continue on with logic
