Hey everyone

When I use add data in Arcmap, and select my .lan file I get the message:

"Invalid raster dataset. Failed to create raster layer".

The only thing is find when I search on the internet is that .lan. is a raster format supported by ArcGIS.

Is there another way of opening the file? Or is it not possible to open it in Arcmap?

Thank you very much!

Best regards

Ditlev Reventlow.

Hi Ditlev,

Go to Customize > ArcMap Options > Raster > File Formats.

Make sure ERDAS 7.5 LAN is available and checked.

Thank you. I went in there and It was already checked, so I guess it must be something else. Do you think it is an error with the specific file that I have downloaded?

There is a chance that the downloaded file is corrupt. You could try to open another file. Let me know if the error still persists.
