I have four rasters see here that are the same cell size in ArcGIS. Ultimately, I hope to use cell statistics to merge them all into a composite. Upon closer inspection, the pixels of the rasters do not overlap and are misaligned by several meters. overlap. The image that is displayed are two of the rasters that overlap as well as their associated points. As you can see, neither the points nor the rasters completely overlap. I have been working on this for hours and have tried to reproject all of the rasters, snap them to one layer, etc and nothing seems to work.

Would anyone have any idea on how to get these overlapping pixels to realign?

Finally, I would like to show the spatial reference in the event that it is helpful. the datum and spatial reference are the same for every raster.

spatial references

  • I am not 100% sure of this. But would the misalignment of the rasters may be a result of the source of the rasters. So the sensors or way the rasters were created. It may not be a projection issue. An untested method would be to convert all rasters to points. Move the points using a spatial adjustment or a coordinate table to the same locations. Convert the new positions to raster. – Keagan Allan Jan 20 '18 at 18:13

    Thank you so much for your response, Keagan. I actually spent the entire day doing exactly what you said (also, resampling and reprojecting to make sure they are "all on the same page"). – Redskies421 Jan 20 '18 at 18:55

  • There is no reason to convert to points to shift raster alignment; the arcpy.Shift_management utility is nearly instantaneous. Please remove the second question from this Question to prevent it from being closed as too broad. – Vince Jan 21 '18 at 12:35
