Description (last modified by jjr8) (diff)
The Fit GLM tool allows the caller to pass in a point feature class or layer and then reference x, y, z, or m coordinates in the model's formula. The Predict GLM From Rasters tool creates a predicted response raster from input rasters that represent the values of each variable in the formula. Currently, if the user references point coordinates in the formula, he must also create rasters that represent these variables and pass them into the Predict tool. For example, if he references the y coordinate which represents latitude, he must create a raster where the values of the cells are the latitudes of the cells. The Predict tool should create x and y rasters automatically if the user does not provide them.
Note that we cannot create the z or m rasters automatically unless we plan to ask for the extents of these coordinates and then produce an output raster stack. I do not want to do that at this time.
