Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring raster data, part of ArcGIS Essential Training.
- As we've seen, raster files…come in a wide variety of types.…I thought it would be useful to take a moment,…and explore some of the raster files…I've provided in the exercise files, that have…centered around Mount Rainier National Park.…Now in the Catalog Tree, I've browsed out…to my folder connections, Exercise Files, Chapter 9,…and we're looking in the Chapter 9 Data folder here.…Now the first raster file I want to look at…is this AirPhoto for Observation Rock.…Raster files are all indicated by this grid icon over here.…And sometimes you have a plus button, where you can…expand them to see their different data bands.…If I click on it here, and then choose…the "Preview" tab in our catalog, we can see…a preview of what this air photo covers.…
Now this air photo is in a standard .jpg file format.…And here we have the different data color bands:…one for red, blue, and green.…When we click on the air photo here,…we see the composite color image.…If I right click on it, I can go into…"Properties" here, and see its resolution.…
