Raster inputs to a gpk in Runtime

What methods are there to specify elevation / raster input (DTED) to a gpk file that will run locally?

Id like to calculate a viewshed based on:

  • A layer in the table of contents, this is likely to be a mosaic DTED layer. (Given a mpk file that already has the DTED layer added.)
  • A directory containing files on the file system.


More questions:

Given a directory of DTED data can we run a model / gpk that will create a mosaic layer that can be added to the Runtime Map?

Can we specify a layer on the runtime map as a parameter to the viewshed model we build?


The idea is that either the user will start with a mpk file that has elevation data or they will add the elevation data at runtime via a add data functionality similar to Arc Map (even if we have to build the mosaic at runtime as well).


They will then create a viewshed based on the data that is either present in the mpk or added later.
