Raster Functions and Geoprocessing

The list of raster functions accessible in ArcGIS Pro is extended in 2.4 with additional indices and distance and hydro functions, enabling analysts to design and run targeted workflows for distance modeling and hydrological modeling.

Several new global raster functions are available, and enhancements have been made to many others:

• The Focal Statistics function has been enhanced to support parameters similar to those available with GP tools.
• Most raster functions are enhanced to support analysis of multidimensional datasets.
• New geoprocessing tools were added to process multidimensional data:
– Tool to aggregate multidimensional raster data along a dimension.
– Tool to Compute the anomaly for each slice in a multidimensional raster to generate a multidimensional dataset



Motion Imagery

We continue to improve and enhance our motion video support, so you can manage and interactively use video with embedded geospatial metadata. Key features in this release include:
