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:

// create raster function
const rasterFunction = ArcGISRuntimeEnvironment.createObject("RasterFunction", {path: dataPath + "/hillshade_simplified.json"});
// get the arguments
const rasterFunctionArguments = rasterFunction.arguments;
// set the raster
rasterFunctionArguments.setRaster("raster", imageServiceRaster);

// create the raster from the raster function
const raster = ArcGISRuntimeEnvironment.createObject("Raster", { rasterFunction: rasterFunction });

// create raster layer from raster
const rasterLayer = ArcGISRuntimeEnvironment.createObject("RasterLayer", { raster: raster });

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