I am trying to run the focal statistics tool on this raster for some reason I am getting this name error, even though the script ran fine a moment earlier.

FocStatCalc = arcpy.sa.FocalStatistics(MajFilCalc2, NbrCicle(3, "CELL"), "MAJORITY")
FocStatCalc1 = r"N:\geog327\python15\Project\Results\FocStatCalc.tif"
FocStatCalc2 = arcpy.Raster(r"N:\geog327\python15\Project\Results\FocStatCalc.tif")

    You have a typo: NbrCicle should be NbrCircle – BERA May 2 '17 at 8:01

    Have you import the module?: import arcpy and also: from arcpy.sa import *? Or you need to: arcpy.sa.NbrCircle(... – BERA May 2 '17 at 8:10
  • That solved it. It pretty strange that I had to do that even though at the beginning of the bigger block of code I have arcpy.CheckOutExtension("spatial"), I just assumed I wouldn't need to import the sa tools again even if a license was already checked out. – Noah P May 2 '17 at 8:13

You have a typo: NbrCicle should be NbrCircle

Also make sure you have imported the modules:

import arcpy
from arcpy.sa import *

Or NbrCircle will not be recognized. You can also do:
