Hi,

I am working with earthquake data and I want to show the depth of each incident but I can´t display it in ArcGIS Pro. I added my point data, It showed as a 3d layer. However, when I changed the appearance to extrude my point features, they were no longer visible. I tried displaying this data using ArcScene and it worked just fine. Is there any configuration that I need to do before displaying 3D point data in ArcGIS Pro?

Attached is an image of how my data looks in ArcScene.

Gabo - go to the Layer Properties -> Elevation and set the "Features are:  Relative to the Ground."  What is your result?

Hi Robert,

It did work, although the points displayed completely different as they did in ArcScene, and the points disappear when I zoom out, or when I just navigate around. Any thoughts why this is happening?

Thanks

Hi Yorlady, attached is the source for a Data Interpoerability Spatial ETL tool that converts USGS-style quake feed GeoJSON to file geodatabase including writing to a custom feature dataset that enables Z values below the default domain limit of -10000.  Note the startup script.  The conversion is from kilometres depth positive down to metres positive up.
