I am trying to set up a template which will display different maps based on layer definitions. One of the layers is a raster layer. Is it possible to combine a number of overlapping images into a single layer so specific images can be selected with a definition query?

  • One of catalogues (managed ?) even supports data driven pages definition. – FelixIP Jun 30 '18 at 6:22

Yes with a Mosaic Dataset:

A mosaic dataset allows you to store, manage, view, and query small to vast collections of raster and image data. It is a data model within the geodatabase used to manage a collection of raster datasets (images) stored as a catalog and viewed as a mosaicked image

  • Nice. I'd been searching for a good example under Mosaic Dataset and Raster Catalog - at least I know Mosaic Dataset will work. Our corporate firewall blocks your image (yes really!). Can you point me to a relevant tutorial example? – nealei Jun 29 '18 at 0:33
