I have a single point as a shapefile and I have a raster layer that indicates wetlands. Each cell is 5m x 5m and there are about 12 "island" wetlands. I'd like to be able to find the straight line distance to each cell within each wetland - presumably it would be centroid of each raster cell. The cells don't contain any specific attributes just a binary value of 1, but I would like to populate each cell with the distance to the point.

I've tried Euclidian distance, but that doesn't give me the result I want, as it goes around the wetlands as they are considered barriers.

Are they any tools in ArcGIS Pro that can do this - seems pretty simple, but I'm stuck.

  • I don't know about arcgis, but other programs call this grid distance with an ignore (ignore = certaincellvalue) parameter.

I just converted the raster to a point feature class and ran the near function.
