I’m trying to mosaic a large number of overlapping rasters with Mosaic To New Raster tool within ArcGIS. Prior to mosaicing the rasters I need to get rid of the overlap between them. Using MAXIMUM or MINIMUM mosaicing method is out of question here due to specific values of my rasters. Thus I use polygon layers to extract the parts of my rasters that I need for further processing. This, however, is a lengthy and labour consuming process because of the number of rasters that I have to clip.
I’m looking for a method or tool that would allow me to mosaic rasters without the need of clipping them first. My idea is that the tool would take the coordinates of the polygon layers and use only the parts of rasters within these extents for mosaicing.
Does anyone have an idea or knows about a tool that could do it?
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
