Same scale for multiple rasters’ symbology of a “Stretched” style

Question: Goodday,
I have four rasters that all have different scales associated with the min/max values. I need to represent all of these rasters with the same color ramp applied to the same scale value for all four rasters so that similarities and dissimilarities can be noticed between the four rasters easily. Is it possible to do this as a “Stretched” symbology where I key in the max/min values for the color ramp to be applied to?

Answer: The better way to do this is to use a color map file. In that file you would define the colors as RGB values and you would define the values associated with each color.  That way, for all of the rasters, the same values will have the same colors. Here is a link to the online help topic about how to create a color map file.
