    When displaying a 3D elevation surface using the ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.0, I would like to be able to specify a vertical exaggeration factor for the scene. Often, topography in relatively flat areas needs to be exaggerated in order to be visualized effectively. Having an option for vertical exaggeration would really increase the usefulness of the SceneView for terrain visualization.

     

    By extension, this request also applies to the ArcGIS Online Scene Viewer. See a related idea about vertical exaggeration in AGOL: Scene Viewer (Portal for ArcGIS)
