Using a Derived/Master Mosaic dataset as a container for source raster mosaics, I have successfully enabled the Time Slider feature in ArcGIS 10.1. The imagery on display was acquired most years between 2004-2010. However, in the case of the year 2006 I have more than one dataset; one with leaf-off acquired in early Spring, and one with leaf-on acquired in late summer.
I would like to enable the Time Slider for both raster sets along the same time continuum with the other individual years. So, in a perfect world I would be able to have: 2004, 2006 (spring), 2006 (summer), 2007, 2008, 2010 on my Time Slider bar. (I intentionally left out the years for which I have no rasters: 2005, 2009).
However, in order to enable both of the 2006 sets I think I'll have to introduce a Month or even a full date rather than just incrementing by Year. I'd prefer to not do this because it will cause the user to click 12 times more per year along the slider.
Has anyone come up with a way to enable the Time Slider to include more than one raster per year without introducing month increments?
