Suppose I have a master collection of elevation data stored as a mosaic, with something like ZOrder to grade the data sources from best to worst. I need to extract the best data to an output raster using an extent, cell size, and mask of my choosing. I need to do this often for various needs and users, and want to automate this task.
The ArcGIS documentation lists two methods: CopyRaster and ExportMosaicDatasetData. The CopyRaster tool is fine for what it does, but is slow and will not apply a mask and, more importantly it won't change the cell size for me. So it's worthless for my purposes. The ExportMosaicDatasetData tool does everything I need, as long as I set up a graphic in ArcMap to control the extent and mask. It's a good tool. However, it only seems to run interactively as a dialog box within ArcMap. I don't know of a way to get it into a Python script. Solutions?
Can someone tell me what kind of resampling is used by ExportMosaicDatasetData?
As a smaller part of the same general problem, I would like to convert selected features from a layer into a graphic, but again this only seems to be available interactively by using a dialog box. Is there a way to "ConvertFeaturesToGraphics" within a script?
Thanks for any help. New to this forum, Tim.L
