Raster Column vs. Attachments in feature class

Question asked by Leandermen on Jul 17, 2014

Hi Everyone.


I'm currently analyzing an existing data model for a project and i saw something strange in a feature class. Looking the FC fields i found a Raster field, i found out in a blog post that you can use raster fields to attach imagery to a feature class object. In this case the GDB owner uses the Raster Field to store a photo of the point. I'd like to suggest him that he should change the Raster Column with Attachments (pointing that is the most compatible solution if he wants to use AGOL) but before that i'd like to share the experience to receive some feedback and to make the question: Is the raster field a valid solution to store image attachments in a Web GIS platform?
