The Vector Field function is used to composite and convert two rasters into a two-band raster that is either of data type Magnitude-Directionor data type U-V.
Once you specify the parameters, you can use the Vector Field Renderer function to display your raster.
If the Input Data Type parameter is Magnitude-Direction, you also need to specify the Angular Reference System. parameter.
The U value is sometimes referred to as the zonal velocity, and V value is sometimes referred to as the meridional velocity.
Input Raster 1
The first input raster.
This will either be the U value or the magnitude.
Input Raster 2
The second input raster.
This will either be the V value or the direction.
|Input Data Type|
The type of vector field your inputs represent.
|Angular Reference System|
Specifies how the direction component was measured.
|Output Data Type|
Specifies the type of vector field your output will represent.
