Raster A and Raster B are both calculated from the same point feature. Raster A results from Natural Neighbor Interpolation in the Spatial Analyst toolbox. Raster B results from Point Density in the Spatial Analyst toolbox. However, the rasters are not congruent with each other:

  1. Raster B has 2 more columns and two more rows than Raster A
  2. Cells of Raster B are shifted relative to cells of Raster A

How to start in order to get congruent rasters from the same point feature? Shift of one of the rasters is not a solution as the value within a cell should be accurate, i.e. it should represent the area covered by the cell.

  • Shift is the only way to alter the origin of a raster. You can't have it both ways. – Vince Jun 12 '19 at 10:21

    Recreate raster B and ensure the environment settings are set such that raster B will have the same cell size and raster A and set the snap raster setting is set to raster A. – GBG Jun 12 '19 at 14:33

You need to re-run Point Density and in the tool environment setting, set the output extent and snap raster to "Raster A":
