How to persist a geodata transformation on a raster dataset


Summary
Some applications prohibit rasters from being permanently transformed; consequently, transformations can be stored in the raster dataset so that they can be retrieved and modified later.

Persisting a geodata transformation on a raster dataset

GeodataXform can be stored as part of a raster dataset and applied to transform pixels in the dataset on the fly during access. To add GeodataXform to a raster dataset, use the following code:
[C#]
public static void AddGeodataXformToRasterDataset(IRasterDataset rasterDataset,
    IGeodataXform xform)
{
    //Cast to the IGeoDatasetSchemaEdit2 interface.
    IGeoDatasetSchemaEdit2 datasetSchemaEdit=(IGeoDatasetSchemaEdit2)rasterDataset;

    // Add GeodataXform to the raster dataset.
    datasetSchemaEdit.AlterGeodataXform(xform);
}
[VB.NET]
Public Sub AddGeodataXformToRasterDataset(ByVal rasterDataset As IRasterDataset, ByVal xform As IGeodataXform)
    
    'Cast to the IGeoDatasetSchemeEdit2 interface.
    Dim datasetSchemaEdit As IGeoDatasetSchemaEdit2=CType(rasterDataset, IGeoDatasetSchemaEdit2)
    
    'Add GeodataXform to the raster dataset.
    datasetSchemaEdit.AlterGeodataXform(xform)
End Sub
