I have a single band raster with values 1-9 (9 being the best and a cell size of 5m) this raster has been clipped to a feature class that has approximately 80 individual buffered areas of 250m (none of these buffered areas are spatially joined). Within each of the buffered areas of the raster, there are multiple cells with different values.
I need a single point within each buffered area that has the best value, but for the largest concentration of those values. If there is no value of 9 then a single point for a value of 8 and so on.
So I will end up with 80 points that indicate the highest concentration of the best value available. Just to be clear the point won't necessarily be in the middle of the buffered area, but somewhere within it.
How do I go about modeling this or a python script in ArcGIS Desktop 10.3.1?
