I am trying to reclassify DEM using arcpy.sa.Reclassify and it is showing an error.

Following are my commands:

dem_re=arcpy.sa.Reclassify("dem_extfish.tif","VALUE",arcpy.sa.RemapRange([[391, 677, 1],[677, 963, 2],[963, 1249, 3],[1249, 1535, 4],[1535, 1821, 5],[1821, 2107, 6],[2107, 2393, 7],[2393, 2679, 8],[2679, 2965, 9],[2965, 3242,10]]))

dem_re.save("reclass_dem_eleband.tif")

The above command gives the error:

ExecuteError: ERROR 999999: Error executing function.
Failed to execute (Reclassify).

However, it was reclassified using ArcMap but have been producing the error with ArcPy.

The full error and traceback are as below:

  • Yes I have set the workspace using arcpy.env.workspace but the error is till there – lsr729 Jun 27 at 5:04

    I have checked minimum and maximum values in arcgis also and its correct.Setting -9999 and 9999 as min and max didnt help. Same error – lsr729 Jun 27 at 5:24

Cant' be sure of your input or other factors such as your environment extent or cellsize (i can only assume defaults). However the sample code below worked for me using your remap example. Possibly check your input data and your env settings.

You could also test another tool like Slice() just to verify your input is working.

from arcpy.sa import *

# create a sample input with enough values to reclassify based on users remap.
ras1 = CreateRandomRaster("",1, "0 0 1000 1000")
ras2 = ras1 * 1000

remap = RemapRange([[391, 677, 1],
                    [677, 963, 2],
                    [963, 1249, 3],
                    [1249, 1535, 4],
                    [1535, 1821, 5],
                    [1821, 2107, 6],
                    [2107, 2393, 7],
                    [2393, 2679, 8],
                    [2679, 2965, 9],
                    [2965, 3242,10]])


dem_re = Reclassify(ras2,"VALUE",remap)
dem_re.save()
