Raster Resolution

If I take a 30m DEM and re-sample the data to a different 30m grid that is offset by 10m in each direction, is the resolution still 30m?

Mapping Center Answer:

Are you saying that you want to set the Snap Raster to one that is "offset by 10m" and then you want to use the Resample tool to "resample" the original input grid?  As long as you set the output cell size in the Resample tool to 30m, the output raster resolution will still be 30m.
