I have encountered an error in how ArcGIS Desktop displays a Raster file (.TIF format) at different scales. At scales greater than 1:3,76,600, when I'm zoomed in, the raster displays mostly correctly, showing only a border of low-value cells, or no border -the "border" appears inconsistently. (first picture)
What is consistent is that when I zoom out, specifically when I go from 1: 3,000,000 to 1:4,000,000, the white background (correctly indicating no-data cells) change to blue (indicating the lowest value "bin" in the classification). When I check the cell values, the cells are NoData value, even when zoomed in and blue (and they should be clear). (second picture)
I want to display this data zoomed out to a scale smaller than 1:3,000,000 but it is falsely visualizing the data. I am working in ArcGIS Desktop 10.2 with all licenses installed. In Layer Properties > General Tab > "Scale Range," "Show layer at all scales" is checked.
