I am trying to find the location of the highest value pixel in my Direct Solar Radiation Raster. I can see the extent of the data in my raster but don't know where the highest value pertains to. Is there a way to simply select pixel with highest value or create a point at highest value? Much appreciated!
From what I know, there is no direct tool. So you need to :
1) read the maximum value in the properties of your raster (right click on the raster > raster properties ) (if not available, launch "build statistics"(management tools > raster > raster properties). Make sure that your skip factor is set to "1" in order to use all pixels during the calculation (skip factor correspond to the pyramid level)
2) use the "Equal to" tool (spatial analyst > math > logical) to identify the cells with the maximum value
remark : alternatively you can do this with "reclassify" or map algebra.
3) convert raster to point
