In some instances, when running the Polyline To Raster or Polygon To Raster conversion tools on a feature layer with a geographic coordinate system (GCS), the conversion tool does not generate an attribute table for the output raster.
The raster conversion tools calculate the default and optimal cell size for the output raster based on the shortest extent of the width or height of the input feature dataset in the output spatial reference, divided by 250.
As the GCS uses decimal degrees as the unit of measurement, the extent is limited to 360 degrees. If the extent of the input feature exceeds the limits of the GCS, the default calculated cell size value is inappropriate to produce an output raster with an attribute table.
This issue can also occur if the input feature is changed from a projected coordinate system (PCS) to a GCS through the XY Coordinate tab of the feature class properties. The coordinate system is changed but the extent of the feature is retained.
The following methods can be used as a workaround for this issue:
