Classes that implement IRasterPyramid

Classes Description
RasterBand A representation of a single band of a raster dataset on disk.
RasterDataset A representation of a raster dataset on disk.


The MinimumSize property is used to specify the smallest size for which pyramids will be built automatically for certain operations such as SaveAs. For datasets larger than this size, pyramids will be created when you save the dataset to another raster format. If you don�t want the pyramids to be created during SaveAs, simply set a size bigger than the raster dataset.
