Extract values from a raster to a table with ArcGIS

To extract values from one or more raster images to a table, the Extract Multi Values to Points tool is the one indicated. The operation is simple, extracts the values a cell, then registers the values in the attribute table of a predefined point layer.

It is very useful when we have a set of points in a given site, for example, in this case we have two different day precipitation rasters and a digital elevation model. It is now required to know precipitation and elevation values at different points within the study area.

  Creating a Map Package in ArcGIS

To open the Extract Multi Values to Points tool, go to:

ArcToolbox > Spatial Analyst Tools > Extraction

  • Input point feature.- Enter the layer containing the points to be determined.
  • Input rasters.- Enter the raster images for which the information is required.

Finally, open the attributes table to check the values. If you only need to query the values of a single raster image you can use the Extract Values to Points tool.
