Providing image services using mosaic datasets and windows file shares
Authors: jing liu
The mosaic toolset released in ArcGIS 10.0 enabled me to provide fast and cost effective imagery services to GIS users; this can be used as an alternative to ArcServer. I use the mosaic toolset to package satellite imagery and orthophotography into layers. The ability to import mosaic dataset geometry means I can remove all imagery overlaps, drastically improving performance. I complete the layers by creating overviews and then share the mosaic datasets from an internal network space.
