Is there a license-free technology that can export rasters from an ESRI File Geodatabase to a file-based raster (e.g. GeoTIFF or IMG file)?

  • ESRI has the FileGDB API for "reading" the contents of a file geodatabase, but it has very few features for rasters.
  • GDAL has some extensions for file geodatabase, but I've been unable to find one that can export the rasters.

    The File GDB API is read/write for simple feature classes, and read-only for most vector feature classes. There is no raster support in FGDBAPI.DLL. ArcObjects is your only API for reading FGDB rasters.
