Classes that implement IRasterDataset

Classes Description
FunctionRasterDataset (esriDataSourcesRaster) A class for a function raster dataset.
RasterBand (esriDataSourcesRaster) A representation of a single band of a raster dataset on disk.
RasterDataset (esriDataSourcesRaster) A representation of a raster dataset on disk.


The IRasterDataset interface provides basic access to the properties of a raster dataset such as format, compression type etc. It also allows to create a Raster object of the raster dataset.
