Split Mosaic Dataset Items (Data Management)
Splits mosaic dataset items that were merged together using Merge Mosaic Dataset Items. Selections and queries can be used to choose the mosaic dataset items to split apart.
If the selection or query does not contain any merged items, the tool will return an error message.
When the tool is run, it will remove the merged items from the mosaic dataset table then add all the originally merged items as new rows.
Input mosaic dataset.
|Image Service; Mosaic Layer; String|
You can use SQL to define which mosaic dataset items will be split.
If the query does not contain any previously merged items, the tool will return an error.
