Hi,
I need to get the Height value of point in 2d Map.
i know i can load Raster to 3D and query it, but i wonder if there is any more efficient way doing it?

Thanks,

Shahar.

Hi Shahar,

Support for identifying raster cells in the MapView is on the roadmap for a future release. 

Are you able to provide more information about your requirements?

Cheers

Mike

Hi MBranscomb-esristaff

Not really, it something that came from our clients.
when it was only one i helped them by telling them use the Scene in the background and load the ElevationSources with the data and each Tap on the MapView query Scene.BaseSurface.GetElevationAsync(e.Location)
But it didnt work all the time and now 2 more clients want to do something similar,
so i was wondring if i can recommend them for something more elegant

Any idea? workaround?

Thanks,

Have a beautiful day

Shahar.

Hi,

The current release of ArcGIS Runtime (100.8) now includes support for identifying cell/pixel values from raster data.

Welcome to ArcGIS Runtime 100.8 

Thanks
