Help New enough to ARC GIS that I do not know how to do this. I have 10.1 Desktop. Trying to take county level or smaller aerials from NAIP color photos and drape over Raster DEM from NationalMap to get 3D look. Scene? Globe? Step by step would be appreciated
Thanks for your reply yesterday. I still could not get it to work in Scene....BUT what I want to do works in Globe.
My problem in Scene was that when I went to Add Data it would not allow me to add the NAIP color aerials, but instead came up with the icon for "clear selected features" (small square with what looks like an envelope closure line waving through it)
Then in Scene I thought to go to Add Data and try the Add Basemap (from ESRI)...AHA....not available, nor is the Add Data From ArcGIS Online, only offers Add XY Data. Scene allows me to add my other layers just as ArcMap and ArcGlobe do, but not my aerial maps
Globe allows me to get the look I want, BUT cant use 3D Analyst bar for doing Line Of Sight
Can you send a screen shot of the icon you are getting with your Naip Aerials? As long as it is not a mosaic dataset I think you should be able to add any of the supported raster formats. Normally NAIP comes in sid format. What happens when you try to add your NAIP to ArcMap? Will it add?
Not sure how to send a screen shot from ArcGIS BUT the icon I am talking about is always in the same place in Arc MAP, to the LEFT of the icon on the tool bar that is the "Select Elements" ARROW (that points to the upper left) (northwest)) and is called "Clear Selected Features"
In Arc Map I can always add the aerials through Add Data/Add Data/GIS Servers/ then the specific state/county GIS servers below that.
But in Scene, as I drill down past GIS Servers to the actual map I want, it displays the "Clear Selected Features" icon discussed above and wont allow me to add the map to layers.
If you can tell me how to do the screen shots I would be happy to do so. In the alternative I would appreciate a call to discuss the situation. Part of the issue is that ESRI has not added tutorials for to 3D Analyst to ArcGis 10.1 where I might stand a chance of figuring it out myself....this is TREMENDOUSLY difficult software to figure out on my own.....
