I have received a single-band, 32-bit floating-point tif raster DEM, derived from a lidar project.
The tif's XY coordinate system linear units are feet. Its vertical coordinate system units are in meters.
Here's an Arc desktop screenshot showing those units:
When I add this raster to a freshly-opened Arcmap session (and thus no previous CRS), clicking on the raster image with the Identify button reports elevation values in feet. I was expecting meters.
Additionally, Layer Properties > Statistics reports values in feet, as shown below (I am very familiar with this area, and although the units are not stated, these elevation values are in feet):
A review of the Arc Help documentation sheds no light on this.
Why does Arcmap report elevation values in feet when the vertical units are defined in meters?
