Add Rasters

Description

LicenseLicense:

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

This operation is supported at 10.1 and later.

The Add Rasters operation is performed on an image service resource.

The Add Rasters operation adds new rasters to an image service (POST only).

The added rasters can either be uploaded items, using the itemIds parameter, or published services, using the serviceUrl parameter.

If itemIds is specified, uploaded rasters are copied to the image service's dynamic image workspace location; if the serviceUrl is specified, the image service adds the URL to the mosaic dataset—no raster files are copied. The serviceUrl is required input for the following raster types: Image Service, Map Service, WCS, and WMS.

You can provide arguments to the add operation as query parameters defined in the following parameters table:

Request Parameters

Parameter

Details

f

Description: The response format. The default response format is html.

Values: html | json

itemIds

Description: The upload items (raster files) to be added. Either itemIds or serviceUrl is needed to perform this operation.

Syntax: itemIds=<itemId1>,<itemId2>

Example: itemIds=ib740c7bb-e5d0-4156-9cea-12fa7d3a472c,ib740c7bb-e2d0-4106-9fea-12fa7d3a482c

serviceUrl

Description: The URL of the service to be added. The image service will add this URL to the mosaic dataset. Either itemIds or serviceUrl is needed to perform this operation. The service URL is required for the following raster types: Image Service, Map Service, WCS, and WMS.

Example: serviceUrl=http://myserver/arcgis/services/Portland/ImageServer

rasterType

Required

Description: The type of raster files being added. Raster types define the metadata and processing template for raster files to be added. Allowed values are listed in image service resource.

Example: Raster Dataset | CADRG/ECRG | CIB | DTED | Image Service | Map Service | NITF | WCS | WMS

computeStatistics

Description: If true, statistics for the rasters will be computed. The default is false.

Values: false | true

buildPyramids

Description: If true, builds pyramids for the rasters. The default is false.

Values: false | true

buildThumbnail

Description: If true, generates a thumbnail for the rasters. The default is false.

Values: false | true

minimumCellSizeFactor

Description: The factor (times raster resolution) used to populate the MinPS field (maximum cell size above which the raster is visible).

Syntax: minimumCellSizeFactor=<minimumCellSizeFactor>

Example: minimumCellSizeFactor=0.1

maximumCellSizeFactor

Description: The factor (times raster resolution) used to populate MaxPS field (maximum cell size below which raster is visible).

Syntax: maximumCellSizeFactor=<maximumCellSizeFactor>

Example: maximumCellSizeFactor=10

attributes

Description: Any attribute for the added rasters.

Syntax:

{
  "<name1>" : <value1>,
  "<name2>" : <value2>

}

Example:

{
  "MinPS": 0,
  "MaxPS": 20;
  "Year" : 2002,
  "State" : "Florida"
}

geodataTransforms

Description: The geodata transformations applied on the added rasters. A geodata transformation is a mathematical model that performs a geometric transformation on a raster; it defines how the pixels will be transformed when displayed or accessed. Polynomial, projective, identity, and other transformations are available. The geodata transformations are applied to the dataset that is added.

Syntax:

[
  {
  "geodataTransform" : "<geodataTransformName1>",
  "geodataTransformArguments" : {<geodataTransformArguments1>}
  },
  {
  "geodataTransform" : "<geodataTransformName2>",
  "geodataTransformArguments" : {<geodataTransformArguments2>}
  }
]

The syntax of the geodataTransformArguments property varies based on the specified geodataTransform name. See Geodata Transformations documentation for more details.

geodataTransformApplyMethod

Description: This parameter defines how to apply the provided geodataTransform. The default is esriGeodataTransformApplyAppend.

Values: esriGeodataTransformApplyAppend | esriGeodataTransformApplyReplace | esriGeodataTransformApplyOverwrite

Example usage

Add two jpeg2000 images to an image service through http://myserver/arcgis/rest/sampleImage/ImageServer/add, post content:
