Want to learn more about GeoPlanner? My colleague Joe and our amazing intern from summer 2017, Joanna Wang, created a series of GeoPlanner tutorials and posted them to youtube. Check them out!

I have nodes I guess you could call them in ArcScene that I have joined via Buffer 3D. Now I just want to be able to close the multipatch so that I can calculate the volume of these joined nodes? If that makes sense....
Last week we updated GeoPlanner to version 2.4. For this update, we wanted to help you be more productive and better assess the impact of your plans. Improving productivity involved making the app easier to use by adding tools so you can do more. To help you better understand the impact of your plans, we added dashboard and reporting tools.…(Show moreShow less)
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've tried both. They've definitely finished generating. However, I've just discovered what might be the problem. Saving the map document! It looks from the raster imagery tile cache that regardless of what extent I set in the tool it will be over-ridden by the extent the map document is saved at. The most recent tpk is >5x bigger than the last…
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…
