I have about 300 records in an attribute table that each need an image to go with them. I've created a raster field on the table, and I've got all the needed images as rasters in the same GDB. I've been going through each record and manually adding the appropriate raster in editor.

Is there a script out there for doing this all at once?

  • Are you creating a mosaic dataset or a custom table that happens to contain a raster? – Michael Stimson Nov 17 '14 at 23:48
  • Its a custom table that contains a raster field – Steve Cary Nov 17 '14 at 23:53
  • I can't see anything for python, the help indicates that it needs to be done manually... the only code is .net resources.arcgis.com/en/help/arcobjects-net/conceptualhelp/…. Rasters, blobs etc.. are special and can't be calculated or copied like other fields. Visual Studio .net express 2010 is a free download that works with ArcGis provided you stick to the license terms. – Michael Stimson Nov 17 '14 at 23:54
  • Sorry I can't be of more help. How are you at VB / C#? – Michael Stimson Nov 17 '14 at 23:58
  • Pretty much illiterate, I understand the basics of Python – Steve Cary Nov 18 '14 at 0:01

Attachments may be useful here. If so then you can use the Generate Attachment Match Table to batch load your images.
