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... 

Thank you

Enrico

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.

thanks.

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...

thank you

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..

Thnan you
