Hi, all,

With ArcGIS 10, is there any efficient way to drape satellite images onto a DEM (or �??shaded relief�??), for example, in Mosaic Dataset?

With Mosaic Dataset in 10, it initially shows a little promising 3D analysis capabilities, including being able to very effectively create the �??shaded relief�?? image from DEM.

I am wondering if the �??draping�?? capability is available, which can be used into the function chain, in order efficiently to get massive images draped onto larger DEM. After published as image service, we can see the following 3D outcome in Google Earth or ArcGIS Explorer (see the attached snapshots).
