Save shadows as polygon geometry.

It would be super useful for us to be able to save out shadows cast in a web scene as a polygon feature layer. 

This would allow us to obtain clear, accurate shadow geometry which can be used for a range of new purposes and easily shared with others.

The real business benefit is the ability to perform anlaytics, for example:

  • Calculations using the geometry, such as area calculations
  • Overlaying the shadow geometry to extract a list of properties affected by the shadowing for use in a mailout.
