Mosaicing rasters is the process of fusing multiple geospatial images with the same resolution and map projection into one raster. In this recipe, we'll combine two overlapping satellite images into a single dataset.

Getting ready

You will need to download the overlapping dataset from if you haven't downloaded it from a previous recipe.
