I'm having problems using the conversion tool raster to polygon in model builder. My model reads as follows: (1)data, (2)interate raster, (3)extract subdataset, (4)raster to polygon. Am I missing something? btw the data is in hdf format. Thanks!

Mapping Center Answer:

As we noted in a previous answer here on Ask a Cartographer, HDF is a multiple page raster -- it will not work in many of our raster processing tools.

Are you converting subdatasets from HDF (which is multipage raster) to raster datasets? If not, then use the Extract Subdataset tool to create a separate raster dataset and use that as input to Model Builder.
