Pretty straight forward, I am not a power user, but is there a way to get .sid files to work on ArcGIS Pro, or is it only possible in ArcMap?

Hi, Data Interoperability extension can read Lizardtech MrSID.  The workflow would be to convert the data to a supported raster dataset.

How do you use Data Interoperability to convert MrSID files? It is not listed in the FME Reader Gallery.

I found it in the Data Inspector. It did not appear in the Quick Import Tool.

strange, since according to

they should be able to be read

Supports generations 2, 3, and 4.

sSingle file—extension *.sid

World file—extension *.sdw

Read-only

8-, and 16-bit unsigned integer

Yes

Generation 2 and generation 3—limited to 1 or 3 bands

Generation 4—unlimited

anything special? are you adding them to an empty map?

When I upgraded from 2.4 to 2.6, ArcGIS Pro stopped reading my MrSID files. I removed and then re-added them after seeing your comment. Now they draw. Thanks.

Confirming that ArcPro 3.1 reads a .sid file directly.
