IRasterCatalogTable Interface

Provides access to members that control a raster catalog table.

Product Availability

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


A raster catalog is a table in any supported table format (including INFO, dbf, access, text, and others) that contains a list of raster datasets and their geographic extents.

The first five columns of the table must be called "Image", "Xmin", "Ymin", "Xmax", and "YMax" for the table to be identified as a raster catalog. The first column contains the path to a dataset on disk, while the next four contain the bounding box of the dataset. Additional fields in the table are allowed but will have no effect on the display of the raster catalog.


Name Description
Read-only property FieldBoundsLocation Bounds of the field location of the raster catalog.
Read-only property FieldNameLocation Location of the field name of the raster catalog.
Read-only property OID OID of the ith raster in the raster catalog.
Read-only property RasterDataset Reference to the ith raster dataset in the raster catalog.
Read-only property RasterExtent Extent of the ith raster in the catalog.
Read-only property RasterName Name of the ith raster in the raster catalog.
Read-only property Size Number of rasters in the raster catalog.
Read/write property Table The table object underlying the raster catalog table.
Method Update Updates the object after the table is changed.
Read/write property WhereClause A SQL expression limiting the list of rasters currently viewed.

Classes that implement IRasterCatalogTable

Classes Description
RasterCatalogTable A special type of table used to display multiple rasters simultaneously.
SdeRasterCatalogTable A class for managing 8.x ArcSDE RasterCatalogs.


The IRasterCatalogTable object allows you to access information about a raster catalog including the extent and name for each dataset in the catalog and the number of datasets (Size) and Extent of the entire raster catalog.

You can also provide a table in the correct format to be used as the RasterCatalogTable (The counterpart for 8.x tyle ArcSDE raster catalog is SdeRasterCatalogTable). You must call the Update method after putting a table in the RasterCatalogTable.
