Hi, I'm looking for a solution to a simple question:
how can I get terrain elevation and coordinates for a point in the ago or Portal scene viewer?
There are beautiful tools so measure distance and area but the simplest action in 3D is to analyze the elevation in a certain location.
It's really strange...
First use the Feature Vertices to Points process to create your points
Then you can generate a near table to determine elevation from a contour line or you can join the points to the contour line and update the point from the join.
Thank you Robert, maybe I wrote non clearly what I mean
My question is about the AGOl/Portal Scene Viewer application: in this app seems not be available any widget/tool to identify elevation on terrain at a certain location or point.
There are measurement tools the permit to evaluate a linear distance or a planimetric area but no tool to get elevation clicking on the terrain.
IWhen you use the linear distance moving cursor on terrain raw a contour line at equal elevation but I don' see any value to understand the terrain z value.
Hoping to receive some feedback...!
I just tested also the new AGOL Scene Viewer but nothing seems changed... It seems me incredible that in a 3d model i can't identify the elevetion layer in a certain location...
Tested the new Scene Viewer (June 2020) presented in the ArcGIS Blog by Philip Mielke: I can't query elevation on terrain... The dynamic countour that appears in linear measurement has non elevation label so it is quite useless.
Hoping to receive answers, feedback or workaround..
Any informations about these features's release plan? In these months I've seen many improvement in scene viewer but this feature seems still pending. Thank you
