MrSid images generated with the ArcPad Desktop Tools are not viewable in ArcPad

Last Published: April 25, 2020


In ArcMap 9.1, the world file .SDW is not created for the output MrSID image from the ArcPad Desktop Tools. As a result, ArcPad 6 is unable to load the MrSID images. ArcPad requires a world file to georeference the image.


Due to of a change with the ArcToolbox SidEncoder.dll, a world file is not created by default via the ArcPad Desktop Tools.


The ArcGIS Desktop 9.1 Raster Patch resolves this issue.
