I have created a mosaic dataset in an SDE database. When a user adds this mosaic dataset to ArcMap they get three things - the Boundary, the Footprints and the Image. The Boundary polygon is off (unchecked) by default, but the Footprint polygons (green lines) are ON by default. Is there a way to change this behavior and have the Footprint polygons not automatically draw?
In ArcMap click Customize->ArcMap Options
Select the Raster tab -> Mosaic Dataset tab
And Check/UnCheck the options that you need.
See more in here. Setting default raster display options—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop
Hope this helps.
Thanks. I was hoping there was a way to set this up as a behavior implicit in the mosaic dataset, i.e. not dependent on the users' environment. After further thought, I believe most of our users will access a tile cache built off the mosaic dataset (rather than the mosaic dataset itself), so they won't see the footprints anyway.
