Raster type customization in python (Mosaic Datasets)

Idea created by niklas.norrthonesri-se-esridist Employee on Feb 22, 2011
    It seems that in theory it should be possible to customize the list of raster types that appear in the AddRastersToMosaicDataset tool. But to do that you must use Visual Studio and one of the .Net programming languages (I think). I propose that you open up for doing such customizations in python.

    Python seems like an ideal language for such stuff. It has a strong and easy to use xml library, it is good at string handling, and it is very simple to access the file system from python.
