Adding a raster catalog to a map

  1. Click the Add Data button Add Data on the Standard toolbar.
  2. Click the Look in drop-down arrow and navigate to the geodatabase or folder that contains the raster catalog.
    Geodatabase raster catalogs have their own icon (ArcGIS 9.x:Geodatabase raster catalog gdb icon), whereas traditional file-based raster catalogs have a table icon (ArcGIS 8.3: Raster catalog table icon).
  3. Click the raster catalog.
  4. Click Add.

You can also drag and drop a raster catalog from ArcCatalog or the Catalog window to ArcMap, ArcScene, or ArcGlobe.
