I have a raster of 0.25 degrees resolution. What's the right equation to determine how is the resolution in meters?

  • There isn't one. The true distance varies by pixel in both dimensions.

  • so actually what I did is that the raster spatial reference is GCS-WGS-1984 and I projected it to WGS 1984 UTM Zone 11N spatial reference, this converted the cell size to meters but I don't know if this approach is right.

  • Okay, but there still isn't a 1:1 correspondence between degrees and UTM pixels. The interpolation is a factor in whether it's "right" (more specifically, how not right it is), but you have nowhere near enough information in the Question to determine that.

  • Okay, got it thank you. How about if the resolution is in arc seconds, is it the same?

  • There are lat/lon legth calculators in the web, for example csgnetwork.com/degreelenllavcalc.html.
