This tool will export multiple ArcGIS vector and raster data into one or more ASCII rasters, with identical cell sizes and extents, and with all datasets in the same spatial reference.  Such datasets are then suitable for analysis in Circuitscape (see or general statistical software packages such as R ( Circuitscape requires data in ASCII raster format, with identical cell sizes and extents, and with all datasets in the same spatial reference. This tool will reproject and resize all rasters to match a template raster, and export all ASCII rasters to a specified directory.

Optionally you may choose to export only those portions of a raster that lie within polygons of a polygon layer. This may be the case if you wish to analyze connectivity within a particular corridor polygon.

Requires:  Spatial Analyst, ArcGIS 9.1 or better (at any license level) or ArcGIS 10.
