Interface IRasterBandCollection

All Superinterfaces:
Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
Raster, RasterDataset

public interface IRasterBandCollection
extends Serializable

Provides access to members that control a collection of RasterBands.

Remarks

IRasterBandCollection interface is used to manage and access a collection of raster bands of a RasterDataset or a Raster

The Add, Remove, Clear, AppendBand and AppenBands methods only applicable to IRasterBandCollection on a Raster, not on a RasterDataset.

When a band is added to or removed from a Raster object, the Raster recomputes a default cell size, extent, and spatial reference based on the bands in the Raster. If the user has not explicitly set these properties, the default settings will be applied to the raster object.

The spatial reference is determined first. If the user has not specified a spatial reference system to be applied to the raster, it is calculated from the first band in the raster that has a spatial reference other than unknown. If all bands have an unknown spatial reference, the spatial reference system of the raster will be unknown.

Next the cell size is calculated, if the cell size and number of rows and columns have not been specified by the user. The cell size is the maximum cell size of any input bands projected into the current spatial reference system. If no spatial reference system is known, the largest cell size of any band in the Raster is selected.

Finally, if the extent has not been specified by the user, it is calculated. The extent is the smallest bounding box with an integer number of rows and columns that can be placed around all bands of the input raster while aligning with the bottom-left corner of the Raster.

When To Use

The IRasterBandCollection interface allows you to access the raster bands that compose the raster.
