I have just converted a vector dataset of census tracts into a raster data set for an assignment. I can see the uncompressed size of the dataset in layer properties dialog box. But the assignment specifically asks about the uncompressed size AS WELL AS size on the disc. I checked the size on disc by locating the raster files in geodatabase in my C drive but it shows 0 KB. How can I find the size of raster dataset on disc? The uncompressed size in this example is 72.9 mb. Please help!!
It sounds like you saved the raster into a geodatabase. Your professor may have assumed you would save it into a separate raster/image file. Try running the conversion again but remove the geodatabase name, and give a raster format extension like .tif or .jpg to the name.
