I have a raster which is stored as a .lyr file, which I got from the following source:
When I open it in ArcMap I cannot seem to perform any Raster based analysis, as I get an invalid GP data type error - and I can't even open it in QGIS. I am essentially trying to convert it to a raster format in order to perform raster statistics (zonal statistics in ArcMap or raster <> polygon statistics in QGIS), however neither program recognises it as a valid raster, perhaps because it is lyr file. The link above also allows you to generate it as a KMZ file, however I haven't had any luck trying to utilise this or the contained KML file either. The link does let you export an JPEG or PNG file directly, however after playing around with the parameters I could not get the output to the desired level of quality/resolution.
How might I use this data for raster analysis?
In it's current format it seems I can open it in ArcMap to view it, but not much else.
I also tried to find the data source the .lyr file is pointing to using a python script I found in my searching, however the file does not seem to be a feature class, apparently, so I could not get the source.
