You also have a tutoriwl DEM for about 10 square miles around the wells. In ArcScene, vectors remain in their native format and can float independently of the raster surface.

Exercise 6: ArcGlobe Basics

We can tweak the symbol settings to get it scaled to its actual size and placement but this is probably tutoroal good for now. A few things to highlight here before we go on. ArcScene loads all data into available memory and uses paging files if necessary. Being spherical, this application is optimized for visualizing geography at a global scale. It also renders a representation of the surface of the earth more realistically than other projections.

An ArcGlobe Tutorial

Or you can use the mouse wheel to move in and out. You have control over the amount of downsampling that occurs with the raster data in ArcScene. With Safari, you learn the way you learn best. To visualize the oil wells in three dimensions to see the effectiveness and coverage of your bores.

Again, it inserts it under my Imagery layer argh so next I drag it on top, play around with the symbology set the non-visible cells to No Color, reset the visible cell colour, add a bit of transparency and reset the view:.


You have building footprints, road centerlines, park areas, and transportation infrastructure data for a city, based on a prediction model for 15 years in the future. Available with 3D Analyst license.

I get this screen first:. Most of your data is within one square mile around a group of oil wells. For maximum performance, cache your data, which will organize and copy the source data into tiled LODs. Yutorial also have a TIN for elevation relief.

Many of the tools should look familiar though some are new: We can use this to set features to real-world size if we want. This is a nice way to demonstrate how viewsheds are driven by topography. All the geoprocessing tools are available in both applications. One benefit of using Tutoril is the creation of 3D visualisations using geographic data. At first the global mode is set and you can hutorial around much like you would in ArcMap with a view looking straight down at the ground.

You have an aerial photograph, 3D polylines for the tutkrial drill paths, multipatch data for underground salt domes, and 2D lines for the outgoing oil pipelines. Another difference between the two applications is the ability of ArcScene to support stereo viewing. ArcGlobe is an excellent application for visualizing large, global data.

Annotation features cannot be displayed in Tutroial. Learn more about the ArcScene coordinate system. This allows for fast display and visualization as you zoom in and out, pan around, and navigate to different places in your ArcGlobe document. ArcGlobe and ArcScene are both viable choices because of the following:. Supported for rasterized layers. ArcGlobe The other software package in 3D Analyst is ArcGlobe—a startlingly effective piece of software that ought to be used in every elementary school in the nation.


The first window I get when adding the data is this one:. You have detailed data for the entire county. ArcScene projects all data in an ArcScene document according to the first layer added to the document.

ArcGlobe Basics

Your data includes a series of aerial photographs, road centerlines, parcel boundaries, building footprints, land-use regions, and points of interest.

Learn more about viewing in stereo in ArcScene. To zoom in, right-click-hold and drag the mouse down towards you — opposite to zoom out. This application is generally designed to be used with very large datasets and allows for seamless visualization of both raster and feature data. The layer is added to the map but for some strange reason is usually place under the Imagery layer and is therefor not visible — dragging it above that layer, symbolising by landcover category and adding some transparency gives us:.

Stereo viewing is a great way to enhance the 3D visualization experience. Since ArcGlobe is designed to be used with very large datasets, you should cache your data for optimum performance. All data is loaded into memory, which allows for relatively fast navigation, pan, and zoom functionality. These are the navigation control buttons.

In this case, I just want to drape the raster over the elevation surface to I stick with using this as an image source.
