I am trying to copy a raster to jp2000 from another File Geodatabase that I created as a Mosaic Dataset.

It came out as a whiteout in the middle. I don't know what it cause this.

See screenshot : Mosiac Dataset : Mosaic Dataset

See Post copied from Mosiac Dataset to the new File Geodatase : Post Jp2000 See Result log : enter image description here

Any suggest or ideas why this jp2000 cause it to turn white and I appreciate it. Thanks !

  • This looks like a job for ESRI support. – blah238 Mar 5 '14 at 18:56
  • do you have "normal" values when you click in the white area ? – radouxju Mar 5 '14 at 21:15
  • How do I do that ? radouxju – PROBERT Mar 5 '14 at 21:17
  • with the "identify" tool (blue disk with an "i") in the toolbar with zoom tools – radouxju Mar 5 '14 at 21:41
  • Awww...ok..I checked and it says "No Data" - radouxju – PROBERT Mar 5 '14 at 21:46

Well, this look like a bug. So here is a workaround.

  1. install GDAL (e.g. using OSGEO4W)
  2. create a vrt with all your files (using gdalbuildvrt)
  3. translate your vrt into jp2000 (using gdal_translate)
  • I might try re-do and force the pixel type to uninterger signed and 8 bit. – PROBERT Mar 7 '14 at 20:49
  • I would try with a larger pixel depth. – radouxju Mar 9 '14 at 18:48
  • Radouxju -what type of pixels and number do you think should I try with ? – PROBERT Mar 10 '14 at 2:28
  • For JP2000, it has to be unsigned integer. If it doesn't work with 8 bit, I would try it with 16 bit. 16_BIT_UNSIGNED – radouxju Mar 10 '14 at 7:36
  • Radouxju - Ok. Wish me a luck ! If I get it right. – PROBERT Mar 10 '14 at 14:13

I re-tried and this time with a larger pixel type and 16 bit unsigned. It failed this time and I am suspecting that our computers may have missing some critical files that needed to run properly. I just found out that our ERDAS 2013 has some problems and my ArcGIS 10.1 missed some important files to fun some tools.

We are under US Government so they have to test the software to be certified before they can be install. So if there are some files such .NET framework or MSXML or any other important files that needed to be install. They can get screwed up easily. So that is what I am suspecting and I have already report to have it fixed.
