The VISIBILITY function is not respecting the SETCELL or SETWINDOW settings

Last Published: April 25, 2020


The VISIBILITY() function in GRID doesn't respect the SETCELL or SETWINDOW settings.


This is a known software limitation.

Solution or Workaround

These are two methods to make an output grid with the desired resolution:

  • Method 1: Run the SETWINDOW command to specify the correct extent, and then use the RESAMPLE() function on the result from VISIBILITY().

  • Method 2: Clip and resample the grid before performing VISIBILITY().
