Line-of-sight analysis is using the 3D content in the 3D scene to calculate visibility, and therefore this isn't supported in 2D.

The best you can do is make the camera look straight-down to make it close to 2D.

Thanks for your reply,  is it possible to convert Line of sight as graphic and show in Map View. Line of sight Visibility  Color and obstructed color changes at time of zoom in/out  and Camera view operation in Scene View. LOS  is working based on rendering,so please suggest how  to restrict it, because user get confuse .

Hi,

The LineOfSight and Viewshed analysis tools provide high performance on-the-fly visual calculations in the SceneView. The output of these tools cannot currently be persisted/saved (e.g as graphics). If you want to run visibility analysis and save the results you could look at using the Local Server component to run Geoprocessing packages that you have created in ArcMap. These packages can include a variety of tools from ArcMap - for the full list supported please see Local Server geoprocessing tools support—ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET (WPF) | ArcGIS for Developers. Although this will not provide the same interactive/exploratory experience, it will provide a lot of additional control over the analysis and how you process the results.

For additional information on working with the Local Server component see Local Server—ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET (WPF) | ArcGIS for Developers.

For instructions on creating geoprocessing packages in ArcMap, see A quick tour of geoprocessing packages—ArcMap | ArcGIS Desktop.

Cheers

Mike
