Visible landscape in a 360º view from a single point?

I'm working on producing a graph that realistically represents the visible landscape in a 360º view from a single point.  I'd appreciate all ideas on how I could accomplish this. I've tried many things without success and I'm really a newbie at GIS.

 

I'm currently working with the Zonal Statistics as Table tool to have a table of values that relate DEM elevation with one degree classes.  My main difficulties with this are:

1. Mountain tops that are farthest away appear huge in my graph, which is not consistent with what is actually seen (and the viewshed results, for that matter, which do take into account this factor).

2. I would need all elevation values within a degree to have a sensible depiction of the landscape: the table tool only provides the maximum value every one degree which at the moment is giving me mostly hilltops. An interesting mountain pass that could be seen from the observing point has disappeared completely in the resulting graph.

 

I hope I've provided enough information and thank you all.
