Getting to know your Raster Types Properties

Do you remember what a raster type is?  If not, perhaps a refresher on raster types is needed.

Did you ever wonder what exactly the (default) properties of your raster type are? If so, you can always view and even edit a default raster type, while Adding Rasters to you Mosaic Dataset.

Viewing and Editing your raster type properties
To view the raster type (while using the Add Rasters to Mosaic Dataset tool), click on the Raster Type Properties icon .

This will open up the Raster Type Properties window. The General tab gives an overview of what the raster type is, and the band information. Also the Product Type and Processing Template that are valid with this raster type will be displayed.  You can change the Product Type and Processing Template that will be used, by changing the selection within each of the dropdown boxes. The Product Type allows you to filter which products will be ingested into the mosaic dataset. The Processing Template will specify which Functions will be used when your data is added.

The Properties tab allows you to view the rendering, pan-sharpening, and ortho-rectification instructions while adding rasters. If you do not like the defaults, you can change them at this time.

Finally the Function tab shows you what the various Processing Templates which were in the Processing Template list (on the General tab).  Here you can see what functions each processing template will perform.

Image Service Explorer sample version 1.1 is now available

The Image Service Explorer is a sample web application that allows you to explore image services in web environment. This Silverlight sample has been very popular, and many new features have been added, and therefore we has decided to upload the latest sample for the Image Service Explorer 1.1.  See the details in the link or within the Readme.txt file for more information.

The Image Service Explorer sample has been created and updated by Wenxue Ju.

Displaying your geoprocessing raster output in your web application (using Silverlight)

When you are developing a Geoprocessing service that generates Raster dataset as output (e.g. Viewshed or Hillshade analysis), you will find the output Raster dataset cannot be rendered directly in your web application.

In order to display the Geoprocessing Raster output in the web application, you have to follow the following steps:

Open your raster data with customized settings

One of the most common user enhancements that you have requested was to opendisplay your raster data with more customized settings. The Raster Options dialog window allows you to set a few commonly requested default options. This window is not new to ArcGIS, but many new options have been added for ArcGIS 10. This blog will highlight the new options that have been added.

Accessing the raster options
1) In ArcMap, click on the Customize menu, and then click ArcMap Options
2) In the ArcMap Options window, click on the Raster Tab

Raster Options
There are five sections within the Raster Options window:
- Default RGB Band Combinations
- Raster Dataset tab
- Raster Catalog tab
- Raster Layer tab
- Mosaic Dataset tab


Default RGB band combinations

The default band combination allows you to open up 3 and 4+ band rasters with the same band combination by default.  Therefore if you want all your data to open up as band 4, band 3, band 2 (as RGB), then you can set it here and it open up that way in ArcMap, and other ArcGIS Desktop programs.

Raster dataset
There is a laundry list of options in this tab to help you work with your raster dataset.  There are two new options within this tab:
- Subdataset selection prompt – displayhide the subdataset selection dialog for rasters with subdatasets.
- Create tiled TIFF files – choose between creating tiled TIFFs or striped TIFFs


Raster catalog

Options under this tab will allow you to set your raster catalog visibility options and your color matching limit. There is one new option in this tab:
- Maximum number of raster to be drawn – set the maximum number or raster catalog items to display, even if you have turned off your wireframe.


Raster layer

Option under this tab will allow you to set your display resampling, your contrast stretch options, and the color for your background and nodata values. There are many new options that can be set here:
- Display Resampling – choose your default display resampling method.
- Stretch Type – choose your default stretch type, if statistics exist.
- Standard deviation – choose the default number of standard deviations.
- Percent clip minimum – choose the default minimum percent clip value.
- Percent clip maximum – choose the default maximum percent clip value.
- Apply Gamma Stretch – choose to turn on gamma stretching, and the value(s) for gamma.

Mosaic dataset
Options under this tab will allow you to have your mosaic dataset expanded within your table of contents, and also to set the visibility for your boundary, footprint, seamline and image sub-layers. This is a brand new tab to help you better display your mosaic dataset:
- Make newly added mosaic layer expanded
- Make the boundary sub-layer visible
- Make the footprint sub-layer visible
- Make the seamline sub-layer visible
- Make the image sub-layer visible
