You are here: Rasters > RasterInterpretationCoercer


Alters the underlying interpretation of the bands of the raster geometry on the input features, using the specified conversion options.

For example, an input raster feature with three bands of interpretation (UInt16, Gray8, and Real64) could be converted to a raster feature with three bands of interpretation (Red8, Green8, and Blue8) or four bands of interpretation (Red16, Green16, Blue16, and Alpha16) in a single operation.



Conversion Options

Usage Notes

Each RasterInterpretationCoercer performs a conversion on the input raster. If multiple RasterInterpretationCoercers are used in sequence, then multiple conversions will take place; data quality and translation performance may suffer.

This transformer is unaffected by raster band and palette selection.
