DrLoaderClass Class

A distributed raster catalog loader.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.


The DrLoader object provides functions to load raster datasets or a directory of raster datasets to a raster catalog. It is designed for an ArcGIS for Server environment where there are many containers, and DrLoader spawns its loads to all the worker machines to achieve parallel loading effects. Parallel loading from multiple clients to a raster catalog improves loading performance tremendously.

While loading rasters with transformation and/or spatial reference, options are available for either applying the transformation to the raster or keeping it as a separate xform for the output raster dataset. If chosen, the rasters can also be projected on-the-fly if the raster has a different spatial reference from the raster column of the raster catalog.
