Recently I am working with raster data and arcobjects.net. Here I find something new for me. And here some question arises in my mind. I tried to search some document that can satisfy my mind, but I couldn't find. Any pointer or document or link would be helpful.

When I perform Raster to polygon conversion's, fourth parameter is raster_field. Sometimes I can give either "Value" field or "Count" field in it, sometimes, its only "Value" field. when and why? When does it take only "Value" field?


Would that be any help for you- Raster dataset attribute tables?


You can use Calculate Geometry if I got your problem correctly.

  1. Add a new Field (while Editor Closed)>
  2. Start The Editor
  3. Right click on field Name
  4. click Field Calculator
  • Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user please take the tour to learn about our focused Q&A format. You mention "Calculate Geometry" at the start but then in your steps you say to click "Field Calculator" - for me these are two separate functions, can you confirm which one to use? Also what steps to follow after step 4? – Midavalo Apr 22 '17 at 14:35
