I created a point dataset by adding a x/y coordinates from an Excel table. Here's my point shapefile:

enter image description here

I am converting it to a raster using cell size of 1 using the point to raster in Conversion Tools. I do not understand why the points are not located in the center of each raster cell. In fact for some cells (on the lower left hand side), the points are in the center while for some it is not. I think this is also leading to the white strip in the middle.

Why are the points not in the center of the raster cells, and how do I fix it?

So I tried a different method which solved my problem. Since my issue had to do more with the improving the display, this works for me.

I simply used square2 as symbol of size 32 instead of using point as symbol

and change the colour to no colour for the boundaries. This works fine for me.

    Where is raster in this solution? – FelixIP Apr 28 '17 at 8:23
  • there is no raster. Since I just wanted to display my grids, this works fine for me. – user53020 Apr 28 '17 at 12:58
  • @user53020 This doesn't provide an answer to the question. If your question was just "how do I get it to look like a raster" then this might be closer to answering it. – Midavalo Apr 28 '17 at 14:11
