What's new in ArcGIS Image Server

ArcGIS Image Server 10.8 includes updates, enhancements, and bug fixes.

If you're upgrading to ArcGIS Image Server 10.8, you must reauthorize your software. You can obtain a new license file from My Esri.

Raster Analysis functions in Map Viewer

146 raster functions are available for complex image processing and raster analysis. The raster functions can be combined into image processing chains using the Raster Function Editor window. Build your raster function template, test it, and apply it to your raster and mosaic datasets staged in your raster data store. The raster function chains, called raster function templates, can be saved and shared with members of your enterprise.

To create your custom raster function template, open your ArcGIS Enterprise Map Viewer, click the Analysis tab and choose Raster Analysis. The Raster Analysis pane will open and display categories of raster analysis operations. At the top of the Raster Analysis pane, click the Create a raster function template to perform complex processing and analysis button Raster Function Editor which opens Raster Function Template window. Drag and drop your raster functions displayed in the pane into the work space, double-click on the function in the editor to specify parameter settings. See Apply raster function templates to imagery in ArcGIS Enterprise portal for more details about how to build, apply and share raster function chains.
