Creates a world file based on the pixel size and the location of the upper left pixel.
Your output world file will depend on the file format you are working with. For the valid world file extensions, refer to world files for raster datasets.
If the transformation cannot be expressed as a world file, this tool will write an approximate affine transformation into the world file, with an x on the end of the extension name. For example, a TIFF image with this approximate affine transformation has the extension .tfwx. This is to signify that this is not a standard world file; it is only an approximation.
The raster dataset from which you want to create the world file.
