Examples of raster data would be:JPEG:Joint Photographic Experts Group format is named after the group that created the standard for this format. This format is perhaps the most widely used format to store full-color and grayscale images. Images taken with a digital camera are typically stored in JPEG format.TIFF:Tagged Image File Format is most commonly used in publishing and by graphic artists. TIFF raster data can be stored compressed or uncompressed.MrSID:Multiresolution Seamless Image Database format or MrSID (pronounce it exactly as it looks and that’s how geospatial analysts say it ) is a compression technique to maintain the quality of large images.PNG: Portable Network Graphics is a well-compressed, lossless compression for raster data/files. Lossless simply means that when the data is uncompressed, all the original data prior to compression is not lost and remains with the data.BMP:BITMAP files are Windows bitmap images. This format is used by Windows to store pictures of clip art that can be moved/used in the different Windows applications.
