3D data can be displayed and navigated using the ArcScene Application. in this case we will add an aerial photograph (e.g. aerial 5 in the tutorial data folder) . About This Tutorial. This article describes the steps required to load and display topographic, geologic, and cultural data in ArcScene and presents several. This tutorial is an introduction to ArcGIS 3D Analyst, an extension for ArcGIS. The extension needs to 1 From the 3D Analyst toolbar click the ArcScene button.

Then we can navigate to different places in the model check whether the sign is visible. At the end of the tutorial we create a 3D model from these that we can play with and generate renderings from a tool called ArcScene.

And then change your extent or change your export resolution, the second image will have its georeferencing messed up. Then we have everything we need to make a nice compact 3d model of our site! In addition, certain tools and options displayed here may be specific to ArcScene and therefore not available in other applications. With this in mind, we should create a new folder system that will hold all of this work. How will the removal or addition of buildings create or block views?

Rather than usng a sensible default display properties for images of this kind, ArcMap insists on stretching the color ranges all out of whack. Dockable windows collapse from the 3D view when not in use.

Introducing the ArcScene user interface

This wil make it very easy to register the image as with other layers as we export them to other tools. Note that if you het a cryptic error message when you try to do this it is probably because you qrcscene to change the File Type from geodatabas feature class to Shapefile. You can use the Advanced symbol swettings to read the height for each tuyorial from an attribute.


Later we will investigate how we can create and preserve view corridors after existing buildings are removed in anticipation of developing a new transit-oriented development.

Your clipped groundplan image can be imported directly into Google Earth and registered precisely using your model frame. Export your Clipped Buildings layer.

Shift-click to select more than obne building. By the time we get around to exchanfing the model between a number of tools, you will appreciate the utility of having a retangular model with a vector clipping frame that can be used to register the various parts of the model as we move them into various tools that do not support georeferencing.

If you export an image from arcmap with the Georeference option checked. There is no 3D globe surface provided in ArcScene. It is convenient to plan our model with a rectangular boundary. The example also shows how a we can selectively remove buildings form our builsings layer. It may be helpful to make the sky blue.

The image will also include the outline of the frame. Thererfore, it is better to choose tutoriao new name for your exported image iof you have to export more than once. Export your Frame polygon with the Clamped to Ground option checked.

The Tools toolbar includes several navigation tools used to manipulate the observer and camera target positions. For some reason, ArcMap 10 and Note that you can adjust the size and rotation of symbols. To list data by source will display the storage path above the layers. Our rough 3d model can be useful for investigating how places interact visually.


Because your model is not perfect you may want to viosit the site and take a photograph and then change the view settings in ArcMap to recreate the optics of your photo as shown in the example below. The main reason for the rectangle premise is that the ground plan of the model is going to be exchanged as an image.

As we have explained above, one element arcscenee our site model will be an image of the groundplan for our site and its context. Note that arcscene offers a special box for adjusting the resolution of your exported image in the View Size box at the bottom left corner of the export image dialog.

Google Earth is a browser and authoring tool for georeferenced web content. Before we get into exporting the images we should think about resolution.

Like above, there are a few ways of doing this. Save your buildings as a shapefile in your data folder.

And images are always rectangular. KML and google earth provide many capablities for modeling sites as collections of georeferenced points, lines polygons, images and 3d models. You can quickly learn the name and more about its capabilities. Our clipped dataset is going to include: This is problematic, since the Tutoriial units are in Meters.
