At Arc 10.5.1 I have a raster containing a single cell, with a value of 9300. From it I need to create an output raster whose cell values decay away from the input raster's cell location, starting with the initial value of 9300.
Using the raster calculator, this equation works correctly:
"out_raster" = 9300/EucDistance("in_raster")
Notice that I have manually typed in the in_raster value, 9300.
Instead of manually entering the value, I now want to use the input raster itself, with its value of 9300. This would allow me to place the equation in ModelBuilder and automate the process with additional single-cell input rasters, whose value may vary from layer to layer (i.e. they're not all 9300). So I replace the text value 9300 with the input raster:
"out_raster" = "in_raster"/EucDistance("in_raster")
I expected the output to be identical to manually entering the input raster's value, but this output raster is useless; it does not display any cells, and its Layer Property values range from -3.40282e-038 to 3.40282e+038, which I think are the storage limits of the raster.
So how can I "automate" this raster equation without having to manually type in each input raster's value?
