The Clip to Polygon operation outputs an MVR virtual raster that is a copy of an input source, clipped to a complex polygon set. An input source can be a raster source or a raster file. If the raster source contains multiple raster files, then they are merged. Clip to Polygon supports batch processing where multiple raster inputs can be processed serially.

This operation is used to clip a raster, or a raster source containing one or more rasters, to a complex polygon set loaded from a MapInfo Pro table file.

The polygon set can contain multiple polygons and the polygons can have multiple parts and holes. The coordinate system of the polygons and the rasters do not have to match.

If you clip a raster source that references multiple raster files, then this operation is like combining a Join operation with a clipping function. Consequently, there is no need to Join rasters and then clip them – this operation performs those two functions in one step.
