Is it possible to directly access the z-value from the shape field of a feature in ArcGIS Pro? This would be used in a visualization context, to label bathymetric points by depth. Since we work with very large amounts of data, it is not feasible to store z-values in an attribute field.
I have attached two pictures of our current application in ArcGIS Desktop. The DIS (our bathymetric database) symbolization is developed in-house and accesses the z-value in the shape file geometry. This allows us to visualize our bathymetry database and work with incoming hydrographic surveys.
As far as we can tell, this is not possible in ArcGIS Pro. However, it is important for our operations and we would like a solution in ArcGIS Pro.
