Use a stretch renderer to enhance the visual contrast of raster data for analysis.

Image of stretch renderer

Use case

An appropriate stretch renderer can enhance the contrast of raster imagery, allowing the user to control how their data is displayed for efficient imagery analysis.

How to use the sample

Choose one of the stretch parameter types:

  • Standard deviation - a linear stretch defined by the standard deviation of the pixel values
  • Min-max - a linear stretch based on minimum and maximum pixel values
  • Percent clip - a linear stretch between the defined percent clip minimum and percent clip maximum pixel values

Then configure the parameters and click 'Update renderer'.

How it works

  1. Create a Raster from a raster file.
  2. Create a RasterLayer from the Raster.
  3. Add the layer to the map.
  4. Create a StretchRenderer, specifying the stretch parameters and other properties.
  5. Apply the Renderer to the raster layer.

About the data

This sample uses a raster imagery tile of an area of forested mountainous terrain and rivers.
