I have just made some very nice service area polygons and would like to convert these to rasters for further analysis. When I try polygon to raster (field: to break), it results in an empty raster. I thought maybe there is a problem because there are so many different polygons... so I attempted to dissolve the polygons according to break values, but the resulting polygon shapes are totally different from the ones in the service area analysis. In other words, the shapes from the network analysis are not preserved.


Update: Here is a screenshot of the map and assoc. attribute table.

TO respond to one comment: I have tried to export them as polygons, but when converting these to raster, the shape is not preserved, assuming because there are so many polygons involved. Wish there was a simple fix to this for quick analysis of network polygons and service area findings. I have uploaded a screenshot the raster result as well.mapresultingraster

  • Can you please edit your question including a) an image of your service area polygons and b) a print of their attribute table with a focus on the "to break" field? – umbe1987 May 22 at 9:48
  • original poster here - writing from home computer. I left work before i saw the request for screenshots and unfortunately cannot upload the exact image from home. I dont want to lose any time though so I've done my best to simulate the problem exactly with some data at home. I will repost with the original pics tomorrow morning when I get to the office. The first is a pic of the SA polygons, the second is a pic of the associated attribute table with From Break and To Break columns, which were referenced in the original post. Many thanks!! ![map](https://i – user143467 May 22 at 12:21

  • Have you exported the Service Area Polygons to a new feature class? – smiller May 22 at 14:37
