Serving raster data

Using ArcGIS Server, you can publish an image service using a raster dataset, raster dataset layer, mosaic dataset, and mosaic dataset layer.

You cannot serve a raster catalog directly. If you want to serve a raster catalog, you can create a referenced mosaic dataset that uses the raster catalog as its data source.
