Bug BUG-000116630


When using the Split Raster tool in ArcMap or ArcGIS Pro, the output between the three split method options differ. When the Polygon Features split method is used and the raster used has empty NoData, rasters are promoted in the output and NoData is filled with the promoted raster values. This does not happen when using the Size of Tile or Number of Tiles split method.

Additional Information

This is concurring because the clipping geometry is not perfectly aligned with the pixel edge. Because of this it needs to add a whole pixel to the outer edge of the output raster. This extra pixel will be assigned "nodata". The best approach for this would be to make sure the clipping geometry is perfectly snapped to pixels in the raster.

Alternate Solution

  1. Separate an individual grid pieces from the shapefile.
  2. Run the Clip tool in the Database Management Tools. Click Raster > Raster Processing > Clip.
