    ByVal PixelType As rstPixelType, _
    [ByVal SpatialReference As ISpatialReference], _
    [ByVal Permanent As Boolean] _
) As IRasterDataset
[C#]
public IRasterDataset CreateRasterDataset (
    string Name,
    string Format,
    IPoint Origin,
    int columnCount,

Remarks

CreateRasterDataset creates a file based raster dataset, the origin, width, and height of the raster dataset must be specified along with other required parameters, the raster dataset with the specified dimension and default pixel values will be created . The default pixel values of the raster dataset can be modified by writting pixel blocks to the dataset or mosaicking.

CreateRasterDataset can be used to create GRID, TIFF, ERDAS Imagine,BMP, Idrisi format,  and in memory raster. The strings used to specify formats are "GRID", "TIFF", "IMAGINE Image", "BMP", "RST", and "MEM" respectively. The strings are case-sensitive.

For GRID format, CreateRasterDataset only allows square cell size.

When creating an in memory raster, the file name can be an empty string.
