Mosaic Dataset To Mobile Mosaic Dataset (Data Management)

Summary

Converts a mosaic dataset into a mobile mosaic dataset compatible with ArcGIS Runtime SDK. A mobile mosaic dataset resides in a mobile geodatabase.

Usage

  • When converting to a mobile mosaic dataset, you have the option to apply raster functions that are associated with the mosaic dataset by checking Convert Rasters (convert_rasters='ALWAYS' in Python). Leaving Convert Rasters unchecked will only convert the source data.

Parameters

LabelExplanationData Type
Mosaic Dataset

The mosaic dataset to be converted to a mobile mosaic dataset.

Mosaic Dataset; Mosaic Layer
Mobile Geodatabase

The geodatabase where the converted mosaic dataset will be created.

File
Mosaic Dataset Name

The name of the mobile mosaic dataset to be created.

String
Query Definition
(Optional)

An SQL expression to select specific items to add to the mobile mosaic dataset.

SQL Expression
Selection Feature
(Optional)

The mosaic dataset items to be included in the output based on the extent of another image or feature class. Items that lay along the defined extent will be included in the mosaic dataset. They will not be clipped.

  • Default—The extent will be based on the maximum extent of all participating inputs. This is the default.
  • Current Display Extent—The extent is equal to the data frame or visible display. The option is not available when there is no active map.
  • As Specified Below—The extent will be based on the minimum and maximum extent values specified.
  • Browse—The extent will be based on an existing dataset.
Extent
Output Data Folder
(Optional)

If specified, the tool will create a copy of the source data in this folder. If Convert Rasters is checked, any raster functions associated with the mosaic dataset are processed before creating the copy.

Folder
Convert Rasters
(Optional)

Applies the raster functions associated with the input mosaic dataset before creating the mobile mosaic dataset. If checked and you have raster functions that are not supported by ArcGIS Runtime SDK, the tool will apply the raster function chain and save the output as converted raster items. If left unchecked, the tool will not convert raster items. If you have raster functions that are not supported by ArcGIS Runtime SDK, the tool will return the appropriate error message.

  • Unchecked—Do not convert raster items with functions that are not supported by ArcGIS Runtime SDK. This is the default.
  • Checked—Apply the raster function chain and save the output as converted raster items.
Boolean
Output Base Name
(Optional)

Appends a prefix to each item, which is copied or converted into the output data folder.

String
Output Format
(Optional)

The format for the rasters written to the output data folder.

  • TIFF —TIFF format
  • PNG —PNG format
  • JPEG —JPEG format
  • JPEG2000 —JPEG2000 format
String
Compression Method
(Optional)

The method of compression for transmitting the mosaicked image from the computer to the display (or from the server to the client).

  • None —No compression will be used.
  • JPEG —Compresses up to 8:1 and is suitable for backdrops.
  • LZ77 —Compresses approximately 2:1. Suitable for analysis.
  • RLE —Lossless compression. Suitable for categorical datasets.
String
Compression Quality
(Optional)

A value from 0 to 100. A higher number means better image quality but less compression. Only enabled when JPEG or JP2000 is specified as the compression method.

File
mosaic_dataset_name

The name of the mobile mosaic dataset to be created.

String
where_clause
(Optional)

An SQL expression to select specific items to add to the mobile mosaic dataset.

SQL Expression
selection_feature
(Optional)

The mosaic dataset items to be included in the output based on the extent of another image or feature class. Items that lay along the defined extent will be included in the mosaic dataset. They will not be clipped.

  • MAXOF—The maximum extent of all inputs will be used.
  • MINOF—The minimum area common to all inputs will be used.
  • DISPLAY—The extent is equal to the visible display.
  • Layer name—The extent of the specified layer will be used.
  • Extent object—The extent of the specified object will be used.
  • Space delimited string of coordinates—The extent of the specified string will be used. Coordinates are expressed in the order of x-min, y-min, x-max, y-max.
Extent
out_data_folder
(Optional)

If specified, the tool will create a copy of the source data in this folder. If convert_rasters='ALWAYS', any raster functions associated with the mosaic dataset are processed before creating the copy.

Folder
convert_rasters
(Optional)

Applies the raster functions associated with the input mosaic dataset before creating the mobile mosaic dataset. If you have raster functions that are not supported by ArcGIS Runtime SDK, the tool will return the appropriate error message.

  • AS_REQUIREDDo not convert raster items with functions that are not supported by ArcGIS Runtime SDK. This is the default.
  • ALWAYSApply the raster function chain and save the output as converted raster items.
Boolean
out_name_prefix
(Optional)

Appends a prefix to each item, which is copied or converted into the output data folder.

String

(Optional)

The method of compression for transmitting the mosaicked image from the computer to the display (or from the server to the client).

  • NONENo compression will be used.
  • JPEGCompresses up to 8:1 and is suitable for backdrops.
  • LZWCompresses approximately 2:1. Suitable for analysis.
  • RLELossless compression. Suitable for categorical datasets.
String
compression_quality
(Optional)

A value from 0 to 100. A higher number means better image quality but less compression. This value only applies when JPEG or JP2 is specified as the compression method.
