I'm trying to use a mosaic dataset as an elevation surface in ArcGIS Pro, but it doesn't seem to work. The layers that I drape on this elevation surface just appear flat. Does anyone have any hints for this?
I just followed the steps but not added a new surface, but added an Elevation Source to the default "Ground" definition and removed the reference to the default surface service:

After adding my mosaic data source (more detail):
Yes, you can use a Mosaic Dataset as an elevation surface in Pro. A couple things...
Hope this helps!
Thanks for the instructions. Unfortunately, I followed all of those steps already and I got the same result as you – a flat MDS! I’m working on an offshore dataset, so I can’t revert to the basemaps for use, and the data was specifically acquired to provide elevation (or rather depths) so I would like to use them if possible.
I'll do some more digging around and get back to you...hopefully I can find a solution for you.
Thanks Robert, that would be really great
Robert, Xander, thanks for the responses. I tried this again this morning, I followed the steps again and this time it worked!
Glad it worked!
