FAQ: Can the spatial reference of a raster be modified once it is loaded into a geodatabase?

Question

Can the spatial reference of a raster be modified once it is loaded into a geodatabase?

Answer

After a raster dataset is loaded with a particular spatial reference into a geodatabase, it may appear that the spatial reference information can be modified in ArcCatalog, but it is actually not changed. To avoid this confusion, set the spatial reference correctly before loading it to a geodatabase.
