For elevation data, you have a number of tiled DEM rasters that cover the entire county. To visualize the oil wells in three dimensions to see the effectiveness agcglobe coverage of your bores.

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.

Your data includes a series of aerial photographs, road centerlines, parcel boundaries, building footprints, land-use regions, and points of interest. Since ArcGlobe is designed to be used with very large datasets, you should cache your data for optimum performance. Tutoria, also renders a representation of the surface of the earth more realistically than other projections.

Get unlimited access to videos, live online training, learning paths, books, tutorials, and more. Although ArcScene is enabled for remote desktop access, performance can be very limited. ArcMap is the best choice for these reasons:.

Working with ArcGlobe and ArcScene—Help | ArcGIS Desktop

It has very good performance at navigation and rendering high- and low-resolution raster and arcvlobe data. Available with 3D Analyst license. To visualize the county in three dimensions for promotional purposes, such as images for brochures and animations for videos.


It is a software lever that gives you an intellectual advantage in looking at the world. All the geoprocessing tools are available in both applications. The process of caching indexes and organizes all your data into tiles and levels of detail. Holding down the left mouse button lets you change the angles. These are the navigation control buttons. In ArcGlobe, you have the option of displaying vector data as rasterized on the surface layer or rendering it as a vector layer with independent properties from the surface layer.

You have control over the amount of downsampling that occurs with the raster data in ArcScene.

An ArcGlobe Tutorial

I get this screen first:. ArcGlobe and ArcScene are both viable choices because of the following:. This application is generally designed to be used with very large datasets and tutorjal for seamless visualization of both raster and feature data. Supported for rasterized layers. This allows arglobe fast display and visualization as you zoom in and out, pan around, and navigate to different places in your ArcGlobe document. Data that does not have projection information associated with it cannot be added into ArcGlobe.

ArcScene renders subsurface data and volumes very well. Earlier I mentioned that you can add your own elevation layers. ArcScene arclgobe all data into available memory and uses paging files if necessary.

We can use this to set features to real-world size if we want. It is based on a global view, with all data projected into a global Cube projection and displayed at varying levels of detail LODsorganized into tiles.

Exercise 6: ArcGlobe Basics

Hold both buttons down and drag to pan the view. Display of KML data. However, ArcScene is better optimized for analysis. ArcGlobe is an excellent application for visualizing large, global data.


Stay ahead with the world’s most comprehensive technology and business learning platform. You have detailed data for the entire county. Draped layers are like a bedsheet thrown over a piece of furniture — they take on the shape of the underlying elevation surface. Measure distances along great circle routes. When you click on the Symbol image you get the Symbol Selector:. Toggle between the modes with the mode button: Many of the tools should look familiar though some are new: If you attempt to launch ArcGlobe or any other Globe Control based application, such as ArcGIS Explorer or ArcReader through remote desktop, you will receive a pop-up notification that this ability has been disabled.

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

Start Free Trial No credit card required. This is a nice way to demonstrate how viewsheds are driven by topography. You have building footprints, road centerlines, park areas, and transportation infrastructure data for a city, based on a prediction tutoriwl for 15 years in the future. To identify the best candidate locations for placing a forestry fire watchtower. At first the global mode is set and you can tutotial around much like you would in ArcMap with a view looking straight down at the ground.

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:.
