Rather than using the default Terrain3D as a ground layer for a Web Scene I would like to use some higher resolution data I have. The area of interest is irregularly shaped and the DEM resolution is 1.5 meters. I have been using the following workflow to prepare my tile layers: Tool > Manage Tile Cache: Used to create a new tile cache. I tried…(Show moreShow less)
I am fighting an issue that basically could be resolved with ONE change in Portal/Online: Both should, as Pro does and CityEngine can set, allow to set Objects to ground as a default. I know this could be an improvement request, but maybe I am doing something initially wrong ... so I describe: My data starts out in CityEngine and there I…(Show moreShow less)
In a previous post, I wrote about how you can view 3D layers in GeoPlanner and do nifty things like model shadows. Things get even niftier if you use Arcade with GeoPlanner to extrude data in 3D. Arcade is a new scripting language in ArcGIS that you can use to control how things are drawn on your map. GeoPlanner lets you use Arcade to control…(Show moreShow less)
Hi everyone, I hope this forum can help me with a problem of one of my archaeology students. We conducted an experiment were we measured the spatial movement of artefacts after trampling of an area. Our data are two polygon layers (before/after trampling) in an arbitrary x,y,z coordinate system (Total Station data, can be georeferenced/projected).…(Show moreShow less)
Dear Dan, my sincere apologies for the late reply, I someone didn't get a notification of your answer. I have attached an ArcScene image of the situation. This is the situation of the artefact layer after trampling in relation to an arbitrary horizontal plane. For the angle calculation, I think we can treat the three observation as one (to…
I have a .las data set i would like to use to create 3d web scene in AGOL to share with other state agencies. I've created the scene layer package in ArcGIS Pro 2.0 and shared to my AGOL account and created a scene from this. When Open the scene, there is nothing there except the world street map. To be honest, I've tried so many steps I can't…(Show moreShow less)
I thought it shouldn't be this hard to publish so i checked with our AGOL admin and it was a setting for my AGOL account allowing me to publish hosted scene layers. once that was checked on, it worked as expected.
Hi! I'm Kijun, ArcGIS user with educational license. I'm working on my project in terms of road inspection using drone map. So I construct DEM for is through drone assisted images. Now, I'm looking for a tools in arcmap for automatically visualizing some damages, debris or craters on the road. What tools will be great a solution for me. …(Show moreShow less)
One way would be to calculate slope from the dem. Flat areas are obviously going to be flat or with a small deviation from it. If the resolution of the dem is small compared to the size of the holes, then you will have areas where the slope is not flat (approximately zero). If the road surface has a gentle incline, then you will have an average…
I am trying to export a pipe network 3D drawing into shapefile, and I am using this following method: "Use ExporttoSDF command, Start a new drawing, then use MapImport to import that .sdf file. I am making sure to create object data during import." Everything works fine but when importing the sdf in the new drawing, the start/end z values of…(Show moreShow less)
Good Day ESRI Community, What is the proper procedure to run Skyline visibility tool from 3D Analyst. My test is a small, rugged area from NED datum and a single 3D observation point on the surface within a valley. My input for the Skyline (3D Analyst) in ArcPro is: Observation point is a 3D Point object with X,Y,Z fields. ArcGIS World…(Show moreShow less)
