    Detailed Description

    Examples of RasterFunctions include Hillshade, Stretch, Colormap, Mask, and ShadedRelief, among others.

    RasterFunctions in ArcGIS Runtime work very similarly to the ArcGIS REST API. The following workflow is a common way to render a raster using a raster function:

    1. Create a raster function via JSON. For example, the following JSON could be used for a Pansharpen function:

      For documentation on the ArcGIS Runtime JSON format and syntax for the different raster functions, please see the Guide topic Add raster data.

    2. Construct a RasterFunction object with the JSON created in step 1.
    3. Get the RasterFunctionArguments with arguments.
    4. Add rasters to the RasterFunctionArguments.
    5. Create a new Raster object with this RasterFunction.
    6. Create a new RasterLayer with the Raster object.
    7. Add the RasterLayer to a map or scene.

    For further details on raster functions, please see the ArcGIS Desktop documentation.

    Use an ImageServiceRaster as an argument for a raster function:

    RasterFunction* rasterFunction = new RasterFunction(m_dataPath + "/hillshade_simplified.json", this);
    RasterFunctionArguments* arguments = rasterFunction->arguments();
    arguments->setRaster("raster", m_imageServiceRaster);
    // create a new raster with the raster function and add to the operational layer
    Raster* raster = new Raster(rasterFunction, this);
    RasterLayer* rasterLayer = new RasterLayer(raster, this);

    You can see the complete code in the C++ sample Raster Function Service.

    Member Function Documentation

    RasterFunction::RasterFunction(const QString &path, QObject *parent = nullptr)

    Constructor that takes a path to a local JSON file and an optional parent.

    [override virtual] RasterFunction::~RasterFunction()


    Esri::ArcGISRuntime::RasterFunctionArguments *RasterFunction::arguments() const

    Returns the arguments of this raster function.

    [static] Esri::ArcGISRuntime::RasterFunction *RasterFunction::fromJson(const QString &json, QObject *parent = nullptr)

    Creates a new RasterFunction from its JSON representation.

    • json - The JSON text.
    • parent - The optional parent.
