How do I symbolise using the z-value of a point in ArcGIS Pro?

I have a point dataset but want to view them based on their geometry, z-value primarily. Anyone have any ideas or good methods to achieve this? Is there anything out of the box in ArcGIS Pro?

I would also accept a way to easily apply a definition query based on a z-value.

Thanks for any pointers,

Greg

Use the Add Geometry Attributes tool, to get the X, Y, Z values in your table and use the Z values column for your symbology

Point symbols—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop 

maybe graduated symbols

Greg,

Expanding on what Dan mentioned, use graduated symbols or colors but use an arcade expression to get the feature Z. 

Geometry($feature).Z
