...and if not, could this be added to the feature wishlist please?
from here Best practices for building terrain datasets—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop
and lots more to read...it is not as simple a dataset to use or manage as one would like.
Hi Dan, thanks for the reply!
It prompted me to realise that I've been tackling the issue in a slightly roundabout way. Unfortunately I'm working in a non-GIS environment; my challenge is trying to 'trim' a dataset that I was given _within_ CityEngine. From an ESRI perspective I can understand this is pretty low priority!
Workflow-wise, what I'm looking at is how to export terrain models efficiently into other 3D modelling formats - DAE and then into sketchup in my case. Exporting all of a terrain is pretty demanding on 3D apps, so I'm looking to make the amount of data exported smaller. In the case of this project, the model is relatively large, but I only need to share a small part of it...hence the question about trimming in CE.
