View of the Import Raster Series tool interface and the resulting raster stored and attributed in a raster catalog.

The AHGW Add to Raster Series tool loads a raster dataset into a raster catalog and attributes the raster with a start and end date/time. The start and end date/time represent the time period of the data stored in the raster, and can be used for animating a series of rasters stored in the catalog.

In addition to importing a single raster, the tool has a batch mode for importing a set of rasters into the catalog and attributing them with the appropriate date/time values.

To automate the process of generating a set of raster series from point features and time series data, the tool can be combined in a model with the Make Time Series Statistics tool. The following image shows a model that:

  1. Creates time series statistics from given points and tabular time series,
  2. Interpolates the points to a raster, and
  3. Imports the raster to a raster catalog and attributes the rasters with appropriate date/time values.
