Question

Can I import TIFF files into an ArcSDE geodatabase using the sderaster command

Answer

Yes. However, ArcSDE requires a third party tool in order to import tiff files. See Related Information for a link to the software web site. Once you download and compile the libtiff library source, save the libtiff library to the %SDEHOME%\bin folder. Use the sderaster command to import the tiff image as normal. For more information regarding the sderaster command refer to the ArcSDE documentation.
