Hello ESRI Users


Please note names of TIFs and paths are made up for this example.


SDE 10.2.2. / ArcDesktop 10.2.2.


December 2014:  I created a colour Orthophoto Mosiac Dataset called AREA1 in SDE 10.2.2


[1] CreateMosaicDataset                         D:\RASTER\conn\1.sde  AREA1   4 BAND  8_BIT_UNSIGNED

[2] AddRastersToMosaicDataset             I added 1000 TIFs to the Mosiac Dataset – these are stored on the File System D:\RASTER\tifs\*.tif 

[3] DefineOverviews                                 Identified 8 overview levels - These are stored on the File System D:\RASTER\overviews\*. tif

[4] BuildOverviews


In part [2] the tifs are called 1.tif,2.tif, 3.tif…..999.tif, 1000.tif


Users access the Mosiac Dataset via an SDE connection.


All worked ok. Performance was good.


HOWEVER, we have now noticed that 4 tifs need replacing (500.tif,501.tif,502.tif and 504.tif) due to poor image quality.


I have naturally read the ESRI documentation and done some “googling” but I am still 100% unsure of the correct procedure.


Can anyone give me a “cookbook” / urls on what is the best procedure to make this update from your real-world experience?


Much appreciated.
