I used the Slope tool in ArcToolbox to create a raster of percent rise from a DEM. The output raster contains some values over 100% (maximum value = 271.5982666015625). How should these be interpreted?
Mapping Center Answer:
We have posted two previous blog articles which discuss the use of slope values for creating surfaces:
Aspect-Slope Map has some step-by-step reclassification values which you may find directly answers your question
Setting the Z-factor Parameter Correctly is a slightly more general discussion
