Reset Image Collection

Reset Image Collection diagram

The ResetImageCollection operation is a service tool that's used to reset the image collection to its original state. The image collection can be adjusted during the orthomapping workflow and if you're not satisfied with the result, you can clear any existing adjustment settings and revert the images to an unadjusted state.

Resetting the image collection includes removing the block adjustment that's computed for the images, rebuilding the footprints, and removing seamlines and mosaic candidates.



As of ArcGIS 10.5, you must license your ArcGIS Server as an ArcGIS Image Server to use this resource.

This operation is supported at 10.6.1 and later.

When you submit a request, the task assigns a unique job ID for the transaction.


{ "jobId": "<unique job identifier>", "jobStatus": "<job status>" }

After the initial request is submitted, you can use the jobId to periodically check the status of the job and messages as described in Checking job status. Once the job has successfully completed, use the jobId to retrieve the results. To track the status, you can make a request of the following form:

http://<Orthomapping service tool url>/ResetImageCollection/jobs/<jobId>

Accessing results

When the status of the job request is esriJobSucceeded, you can access the results of the analysis by making a request of the following form:

http://<Orthomapping service tool url>/ResetImageCollection/jobs/<jobId>/results/result?token=<your token>&f=json

The result will be a Boolean value indicating whether the reset was successful.
