IRasterGeometry::Shift shifts raster in the opposite direction

Last Published: April 25, 2020


When calling IRasterGeometryProc::Shift with positive x and y values as the parameters, the result is shifted in the opposite direction (as if the x and y were negative).


This is a known problem with ArcGIS 8.1. The internal sign used to determine the shift direction was incorrect.

Solution or Workaround

This problem has been resolved in ArcGIS Version 8.1.2.

In ArcGIS 8.1, use the opposite sign for the parameters. For example, if you want to shift to the positive x direction, use parameter -x.
