I have a spline, but it turned out to be angular at the ends, is there a tool or how can I smooth the raster in ArcGIS?

    Hi @easyfreeze, welcome to GIS SE. Which version of ArcGIS are you using?

  • Excellent, you should look into the "Generalization toolset", I've provided details in my answer below.

You might be able to achieve what you are looking for by using Smoothing zone edges with Boundary Clean and Majority Filter

The Boundary Clean and Majority Filter tools are used to generalize the edges of zones in a raster. The edges are smoothed to varying degrees either by expanding and shrinking boundaries or by growing or shrinking zones based on the values within the neighborhood of individual locations.

In the image below, Boundary Clean was applied to the input raster with no sorting of the zones. Zones with larger values have a higher priority to expand into zones with smaller values. Notice that cells with the value 7 expand into the lower value cells.

enter image description here

In the image below, Majority Filter is applied to the input raster using a filter of the closest four cells, which are the four orthogonal neighboring cells, requiring the majority (three out of four cells) to be the same before a cell will change its value. Only those cells surrounded by three or more (orthogonal) cells with the same value are changed.

  • couldn't smooth out the corners of the raster((

  • Can you update your original post with any screenshots of your results, inputs?

  • added an image, the raster looks angular at the corners.
