I'm trying to clip "Terrain" raster I downloaded from the portal (https://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=58a541efc59545e6b7137f961d7de883) in the shape of a polygon (a country's boundaries) by using "Clip" tool but the tool doesn't work properly. It gets stuck at 2% while running.

What could be the reason?

I'm using ArcGIS Pro 2.2.3.

  • Maybe try with 2.3.0 – Kirk Kuykendall Feb 5 at 19:08
  • Use QGIS with XYZ tiles - add a new connection (this works with ESRI basemaps as well) then save the raster. Alternatively, download the DEM from USGS, NASA or other sources. – Jakub Sisak GeoGraphics Feb 11 at 20:50

How large is the area you are trying to clip? There is a cap on image size "The layer is restricted to a 5,000 x 5,000 pixel limit in a single request." Probably your area is larger than that. Try clipping smaller areas or a grid instead and then mosaic the smaller areas together.

And for what purpose do you need this data? For analysis please check the note in the item description on resolution.
