How to format data to visualize 3D temporal data (increments ~1sec) in Portal Scene Viewer

Hello. I'm trying to visualize high-fidelity locational data for aircraft (lat, lon, altitude) with sample times of approximately 1 second in Portal/Scene Viewer. I've tried to do this by uploading zipped shapefiles, but only the date is being read, therefore it's not working. I've tried using zipped file geodatabases, but the altitude data is stripped and all my data is clamped to the ground. Here are my two questions:

  • 1) What data format should I be using to upload static 3D, high fidelity temporal data (doesn't need to be edited or linked to a live resource, just visualized)? Shapefiles and FGDBs don't seem to fit my need.
    • Attribute data format is basically: lat,lon,altitude,date_time,aircraft_name
  • 2) What should the format of the time data be in in each feature's attribute data? I've tried
    • YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss
    • YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss
    • hh:mm:ss in one field with YYYY-MM-DD in another field
    • Just hh:mm:ss with no date.

Thanks for the assistance!!!
