No data for missing bands in mosaic dataset

Question asked by DirkThalheim on Jul 22, 2016



is it possible to adjust the default behaviour for a mosaic dataset when returning images having fewer bands than defined in the mosaic dataset. As default a mosaic dataset returns the nearest matching band.

We have build a four band mosaic dataset (NATURAL_COLOR_RGBI). Unfortunately not all of our images have those four bands. We want to display no data for the fourth infrared band of images where this is missing. As described currently the third band is displayed instead.

You can easily reproduce this issue by creating a four band mosaic dataset, insert a three band image and display it. In the symbology choose the fourth band as source for red and disable all other bands. You will see an image (it's the same when you select the third band as source for red).


Kind regards, Dirk
