Interface IRasterPyramid

All Superinterfaces:
Serializable
All Known Subinterfaces:
IRasterPyramid2
All Known Implementing Classes:
IRasterPyramid2Proxy, IRasterPyramidProxy, RasterBand, RasterDataset

public interface IRasterPyramid
extends Serializable

Provides access to members that control the pyramids for a raster dataset.

Superseded By

IRasterPyramid2

Remarks

The MinimumSize property is used to specify the smallest size for which pyramids will be built automatically for certain operations such as SaveAs. For datasets larger than this size, pyramids will be created when you save the dataset to another raster format. If you donít want the pyramids to be created during SaveAs, simply set a size bigger than the raster dataset.
