Description

The CreateRasterDataset method creates a new empty raster dataset in the geodatabase, whereby it is basically a placeholder for some attributes of a raster dataset, such as the number of bands, pixel type, RASTER column properties, and GEOMETRY column properties.  Once you have created an empty raster dataset in the geodatabase, you can append raster data to it by mosaicking. If the GeometryDef argument is not specified, a default GeometryDef will be created using the according values (for example, spatial reference) set in the RasterDef argument. Since the geometry column is not accessed or updated, there is no need to set the GeometryDef when creating a raster dataset.

If cellsize in the RasterStorageDef is not specified or set to NULL, the new raster dataset will have an undefined cellsize, the cellsize will be set to the cellsize of the first raster that is mosaicked to it.

If spatial reference in the RasterDef is not specified or set to NULL, the new raster dataset will have an unknown spatial reference, the spatial reference will be set to the spatial reference of the first raster that is mosaicked to it.
