I have csv file with XY coordinates of lower left corner of regular 100m x 100m grid. Each cell has several attributes.
I’d like to convert this data into raster format.
I tried generating point shp file and then used ‘feature to raster’ tool from ‘conversion tools’ toolbox specifying 100m resolution of a cell. However the resulting raster cell places the original data point in the centre, not in the lower left corner.
Any suggestions how I could fix that?

I would recalculate the coordinates to be the center, just add 50 m to the coords!

Thanks frax. That was my first guess as well, but was wondering if there is any 'smarter' way..

You can also use the 'shift' tool in the toolbox to nudge the resulting raster.

I've already recalculated coordinates and all went fine, but this also looks like proper solution. Thanks :]
