Method Detail

toRasterDataset

IRasterDataset toRasterDataset(IGeoDataset dataset,
                               String rasterFormat,
                               IWorkspace pWorkspace,

                                      AutomationException
Convert to a RasterDataset.

Remarks

dataset

Input featureclass, featureclassdescriptor, featurelayer to be converted to raster

rasterFormat

ESRI GRID, ERDAS Imagine or TIFF formats are supported. The strings for rasterformat are "GRID", "IMAGINE Image" and "TIFF" respectively and they are case sensitive.

The format string “GRID” creates an output ESRI GRID with no file extension

The format string "TIFF" creates a TIFF file with ".tif" extension. ArcGIS also supports TIFF format with ".tiff" and ".tff" extensions. A format string "TIF" creates a TIFF file with ".tiff" extention and a format string "TFF" creates a TIFF file with ".tff" extension

The format string “IMAGINE Image” creates a raster output with “.img” file extension

pWorkspace

an object specifying the directory or subdirectory to contain the output rasterdataset

name

The name of the output raster dataset

name

The name of the output feature class

zeroAsBackground

a Boolean specifying the cell value that will identify the background cells. The raster is viewed as a set of foreground cells and background cells. The linear features are formed from the foreground cells.

If TRUE, the background is composed of cells of zero or less, or nodata. All cells whose value is greater than zero are the foreground.

If FALSE, the background is composed of NoData cells. All cells with valid values belong to the foreground.

weeding

a Boolean specifying whether or not a weed tolerance will by used

If FALSE, no weeding is done

If TRUE, the featureclass is weeded to reduce the number of vertices.


The WEED option uses the Douglas-Puecker algorithm.

minDangle

Minimum length of dangling polylines that will be retained.

The default is zero.
