How to create a Slope function dataset


Creating a Slope function dataset

To create a Slope function dataset, follow these steps:
  1. Create the Function Arguments object.
  2. Set the Z factor. The Z factor is the scale applied to the elevation values.
  3. Create a Raster Function object.
  4. Create a Function Raster Dataset object.
  5. Create a name object for the function raster dataset.
  6. Specify the output file name for the new dataset.
  7. Initialize the new function raster dataset with the raster function and its arguments.
The following code example shows how to create a Slope function raster dataset by applying the Slope raster function to an image:
[C#]
// Create the Function Arguments object.
ISlopeFunctionArguments rasterFunctionArguments=(ISlopeFunctionArguments)new
    SlopeFunctionArguments();
// The input data can be of type IRasterDataset, IRasterBand, or IRaster.
rasterFunctionArguments.DEM=inputData;
// The Z factor is the scaling factor applied to a DEM that is not in a geographic coordinate system.
rasterFunctionArguments.ZFactor=1 / 111111.0;

// Create the Raster Function object.
IRasterFunction rasterFunction=new SlopeFunction();
// Create the Function Raster Dataset object.
IFunctionRasterDataset functionRasterDataset=new FunctionRasterDataset();
// Create a name object for the Function Raster Dataset.
IFunctionRasterDatasetName functionRasterDatasetName=(IFunctionRasterDatasetName)
    new FunctionRasterDatasetName();
// Specify the output file name for the new dataset (including the .afr extension at the end).
functionRasterDatasetName.FullName=@"c:\temp\SlopeFunction.afr";
functionRasterDataset.FullName=(IName)functionRasterDatasetName;
// Initialize the new Function Raster Dataset with the Raster Function and its arguments.
functionRasterDataset.Init(rasterFunction, rasterFunctionArguments);
[VB.NET]
' Create the Function Arguments object.
Dim rasterFunctionArguments As ISlopeFunctionArguments
rasterFunctionArguments=New SlopeFunctionArguments()
' The input data can be of type IRasterDataset, IRasterBand, or IRaster.
rasterFunctionArguments.DEM=inputData
' The Z factor is the scaling factor applied to a DEM that is not in a geographic coordinate system.
rasterFunctionArguments.ZFactor=1 / 111111.0

' Create the Raster Function object.
Dim rasterFunction As IRasterFunction
rasterFunction=New SlopeFunction()
' Create the Function Raster Dataset object.
Dim functionRasterDataset As IFunctionRasterDataset
functionRasterDataset=New FunctionRasterDataset()
' Create a name object for the Function Raster Dataset.
Dim functionRasterDatasetName As IFunctionRasterDatasetName
functionRasterDatasetName=New FunctionRasterDatasetName()
' Specify the output file name for the new dataset (including the .afr extension at the end).
functionRasterDatasetName.FullName="c:\temp\SlopeFunction.afr"
functionRasterDataset.FullName=functionRasterDatasetName
' Initialize the new Function Raster Dataset with the Raster Function and its arguments.
functionRasterDataset.Init(rasterFunction, rasterFunctionArguments)
