Creates a world file based on the pixel size and the location of the upper left pixel.
If the transformation cannot be expressed as a world file, this tool will write an approximate affine transformation into the world file, with an x on the end of the extension name. For example, a TIFF image with this approximate affine transformation has the extension .tfwx. This is to signify that this is not a standard world file; it is only an approximation.
The raster dataset from which you want to create the world file.
This is a Python sample for the ExportRasterWorldFile tool.
