getting raster data withoud adding them to mxd

Discussion created by Suliman1 on Dec 24, 2013

At current moment if we need add rasters to mxd files and then make service from it, then we can get data from this service on web-map. The problem that I can't add rasters to mxd by hands. The system should automatically get new data from server, and then user via web-interface should be able to access to this data.

I have heard that I can use raster catalog to it, and (as I heard) I would not need to restart service to get access to new data. Is this right way? And where I can get docs/information how it's can be done?

operator load data to DB
user can do search of data in web-interface, and service should not be restarted every time when I add new data.
