Hello everyone. I was wondering how to bring in a Multidemensioanl Raster or a Time Enabled layer into Arcgis Online, similar to this Esri web layer  https://arcg.is/1jqLui  . My goal is to add my layer to a webmap. I have read through lots of documentation but can't seem to find what I am looking for. Can anyone help?

Just to be clear, what do you mean by a multi dimensional Raster?

Are you referring to a raster that shows elevations visually. Like Google Earth?

here is a basic tutorial that may work without having the proper extension

To get really detailed you may need 3D Analyst to create the 3D raster.

Hi @RobertBorchert ,

By Multidimensional Raster I mean a raster that has data that was  captured at data captured at multiple times or multiple depths or heights.  This page gives a nice explanation.

In my case I am trying to show water quality over a specific time period.

Thanks.

You may have to set it up with a time lapse page. 

Look for this in the living atlas

A good example is oceanic data, Multiple variables at multiple depths at multiple times!

I am also interested in finding out about ways of displaying these within web applications - it seems like the ability to display time series is reasonably mature within ESRI, but I have been finding fewer examples where both depth AND time are displayed?

ArcGIS PRO can display and process voxels well, when is this toolset coming to apps and web scenes?
