Build Multidimensional Transpose

Summary

Transposes a multidimensional raster dataset, which chunks the multidimensional data along each dimension to optimize performance when accessing pixel values across all slices.

Usage

  • The input multidimensional raster must be in Cloud Raster Format (CRF).

  • The Build Multidimensional Transpose tool enhances performance when accessing pixel values across all slices in a large multidimensional dataset, for example, when creating a temporal profile chart for daily sea surface temperature values across ten years.

Syntax

BuildMultidimensionalTranspose(in_multidimensional_raster)
ParameterExplanationData Type
in_multidimensional_raster

The input CRF multidimensional raster dataset.

Code sample

BuildMultidimensionalTranspose example 1 (Python window)

This is a Python sample for the BuildMultidimensionalTranspose tool.

import arcpy
## Build the transpose for a sea surface temperature CRF dataset
arcpy.BuildMultidimensionalTranspose_management(
	"C:/Multidimensional/SST_1992_2018")
BuildMultidimensionalTranspose example 2 (stand-alone script)

This is a Python script sample for the BuildMultidimensionalTranspose tool.

## import arcpy and set workspace

import arcpy
arcpy.env.workspace = "C:/Workspace/data"

## Build the transpose for a CRF of temperature data

arcpy.BuildMultidimensionalTranspose_management(
	"Temperature_CRF")
