How to create multidimensional raster data is excellent and shows you how to handle multidimensional raster data in ArcGIS.
- Open a NetCDF file and map / analyze it. Great for gridded climate/ocean data or GCM outputs.
- Combine a bunch of Landsat 8 images into a multidimensional raster 'cube' - that keeps all your satellite images neatly organized and you can run your geoprocessing / raster functions on the cube as oppposed to on each raster individually. Cool!
