3D rendering of Trees and Powerlines

In ArcPro there is a "multipatch" process to create 3D building polygons using LiDAR data. I want to know if there is a possibility to do the same for trees and other vegetation features. I know in R and Matlab it is possible to create really good 3D vegetation and powerlines models. By 3D models I am not referring to the local 3D scene, but rather actually 3D rendering that shows detailed canopy structure like leaves and stems. This can for example be helpful to do a stem count for analysis in case of ecological analysis.

Great idea, Saadullah. We'll see about adding this idea to our backlog for a future release. Unfortunately for now, we do not have any tools or process that can get you the results you are looking for. The best we can offer at this time is using point symbology to visualize a tree(s).

@RodneyChin thank you for your response and for considering my idea. As a spatial data scientist, this is great to hear. Looking forward to this and other great future features.



I just had to comment on your fantastic avatar! What a great show.
