I'm trying to mosaic a very large number of rasters (from 1000 to a maximum of 30000, each one having a very small size, less than 100 kb) into a unique final raster.
I have tried to use the Mosaic To New Raster tool available at:
ArcToolbox > Raster > Raster Dataset
I encounter some issues when I choose the input files from the input folder:
because I need to wait a huge amount of time before viewing the files loaded into the main dialog (I know this is certainly related to my PC performances). Even if, in some cases, I'm able to load all the input files, the duration of the analysis is very long due to the number of the files.
From some comments on this question, it seems that it should be avoided the writing of raster data to a personal geodatabase. I set the Default.gdb for the
Output Location parameter, but I don't understand very well its role.
Since I'm unfamiliar with ArcGIS, is there a more efficient way for the mosaicing of a large number of input rasters? Any workaround or method for avoiding the overloading of the PC resources?
