Using ArcGIS 10.1 (Build 3143) I would like to create a relatively small raster mosaic dataset (the size of a city) based on a larger, existing one (the size of a state) using a single feature class polygon as a spatial query. Is this possible?
Clipping the raster mosaic with Clip (Data Management Tools > Raster > Raster Processing > Clip) or Extract by Mask (Spatial Analyst Tools > Extraction > Extract by Mask) produce low-resolution rasters instead of mosaics.
Over the past few weeks I think I remember seeing the option to perform the operation described above, but now I cannot find it. Ultimately, I will publish the raster mosaic dataset in ArcGIS Server.
