Raster layer (file)

View on GitHub
Sample viewer app

Create and use a raster layer made from a local raster file.

Raster layer (file) sample

Use case

Rasters can be digital aerial photographs, imagery from satellites, digital pictures, or even scanned maps. An end-user will frequently need to import raster files acquired through various data-collection methods into their map to view and analyze the data.

How to use the sample

When the sample starts, a raster will be loaded from a file and displayed in the map view.

How it works

  1. Create an AGSRaster from a raster file.
  2. Create an AGSRasterLayer from the raster.
  3. Add it to the map's operationalLayers array.

Relevant API

  • AGSRaster
  • AGSRasterLayer

Additional information

See the topic What is raster data? in the ArcMap documentation for more information about raster images.
