Add the ability to create 2.5D Building from 2D data with buildings height.
Many websites havethis functionality.
I want to create cache with 2.5D Buildings.
Hi , the tutorial describe only how to create a 3d shape from 2d data ad related height table, NOT how to create a 2.5 Building Symbology in arcgis pro or server.
It seems me that there is any function to do this at thi stime (2016)......
One solution that I use (and could be better) is the Move effect on a polygon layer. Duplicate the fill and give it a y offset of about -3. If you have building heights, even better. Turn on symbol property connections and write an expression for the y offset field. For my data, which is in feet, this worked for my purposes:
IIF(IsEmpty($feature.Build_Hgt), "-3", -$feature.Build_Hgt/12)
which gives buildings without a height value at least some height that may or may not be close to accurate (heights for non-null buildings shown in feet).
Works pretty good for adding just a soupçon of depth to your map, but I admit it looks pretty crappy on tall buildings:
I know the implementation of the idea would be much nicer but this is a good workaround if you're in a map & not looking to convert to /mess with a scene.
