Finding the highest building in a circle

Hello, my name is Hannes.


I am new to ArcGIS and try to realize a project for my diploma thesis. For this, I use, inter alia, the scene of Hamburg, Germany.

I would like to find the highest building in a specific radius (for example 50 meters). However, I can not even select the scene in the analysis tools. And the attribute table is not available as like in the other layers. I use ArcGIS Pro 2.0.1. Do I have to convert the data first, or does it not work with web scene Layer in general? When I click on the building I can see the height of the building. That must be possible for several, or not?

I would like to develop a shortest path problem from a source to a valley for helicopters. For each waypoint, I want to analyze the height of the surrounding buildings and ensure a sufficient safety margin.

I would be grateful for every tip to realize this project.
