Extract by Rectangle (Spatial Analyst)
Extracts the cells of a raster based on a rectangle.
The center of the cell is used to determine whether a cell is inside or outside a rectangle. If the center is within the outline of a rectangle, the cell is considered fully inside even if portions of the cell fall outside the rectangle.
Cell locations that are not selected are assigned a value of NoData.
When a multiband raster is specified as input, a new multiband raster will be created as output. Each individual band in the input multiband raster will be analyzed accordingly.
The default output format is an Esri Grid stack. Note that the name of an Esri Grid stack cannot start with a number, use spaces, or be more than 9 characters in length.
If the input is a layer created from a multiband raster with more than three bands, the extraction operation will only consider the bands that were loaded (symbolized) by the layer. As a result, the output multiband raster can only have three bands, corresponding to those used in the display of the input layer.
If the input raster is integer, the output raster will be integer. If the input is floating point, the output will be floating point.
The input raster from which cells will be extracted.
A rectangle that defines the area to be extracted. An Extent object is used to specify the coordinates.
The form of the object is:
The coordinates are specified in the same map units as the in_raster.
Identifies whether to extract cells inside or outside the input rectangle.
The output raster containing the cell values extracted from the input raster.
This example extracts cells outside a rectangular extent to a new raster.
import arcpy from arcpy import env from arcpy.sa import * env.workspace = "C:/sapyexamples/data" rectExtract = ExtractByRectangle("elevation", Extent(477625, 213900, 486400, 224200), "OUTSIDE") rectExtract.save("c:/sapyexamples/output/extrect")
This example extracts cells inside a rectangular extent to a new raster.
