How to build 'peak' visualisations in ArcGIS

Question asked by CalumAH on Apr 25, 2017

Hi all,


I'm new to the 3D-visualisation part of ArcGIS, and am looking to build something similar to this (scroll further down to see the image).



  • I have a dataset of different types of events (interactions with the public sector - applications, library loans etc)
  • I'd like to map this data by type (with a different colour for applications, loans etc) and showing peaks of activity (like in the above image)
  • If at all possible, I'd like to be able to calculate which points/quantity of which fall on the border between countries (and the % likelihood of a point being recorded on/a few streets near the border versus further inland). I'm not sure how I'd be able to do this, perhaps a variable that looks at whether the long/lat is +/- the measurement of the border?


Grateful for any help or guidance, and please do let me know whether or not this is possible in Arc!
