Custom Raster Format Support in ArcGIS through GDAL

—Frank Warmerdam

View the slides [PDF]

ArcGIS has been using the Geospatial Data Abstract Library (GDAL) as its primary raster I/O library for reading and writing raster datasets of different formats since 9.2. ArcGIS via GDAL provides an open framework for third parties to extend raster format support. In this session, the developer is taken through all the steps necessary to implement a custom raster format in ArcGIS using C++. The session will include a discussion of the GDAL data model, how this maps to ArcGIS, and how aspects of the data model are returned from a GDAL driver.

Prerequisites: Knowledge of raster data and C++
