Interface IRasterWorkspace

All Superinterfaces:
Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
IRasterWorkspaceProxy, RasterWorkspace

public interface IRasterWorkspace
extends Serializable

Provides access to members that control a raster workspace.

Superseded By

IRasterWorkspace2

Remarks

IRasterWorspace is used to access a raster stored in a file system in any supported raster format. RasterWorkspaceFactory must be used to create a raster workspace.

To access raster from geodatabase, use IRasterWorkspaceEx interface.

Example:

// Create RasterWorkspaceFactory
IWorkspaceFactory rasWkspFactory = new RasterWorkspaceFactory();
// Get RasterWorkspace
IRasterWorkspace rasWksp =
new IRasterWorkspaceProxy(rasWkspFactory.openFromFile( aPath, 0 ) );
