binary raster object: A raster whose cells contain only the values 0 (typically displayed as black) or 1 (white). Binary raster objects usually store a scan of black lines on white paper, the results of thresholding a byte-oriented raster object into two data ranges, a threshold of a particular color range, or a data mask.
