3D Vector Data

Discussion created by paulevano on Sep 21, 2011
Dear all,

I have 3D velocity data from an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) survey that we recently carried out. I have managed to display the vectors in the horizontal plane about 360 degrees (please see attached) but would like to display the data in 3D, i.e. flow in all other directions (up, down, diagonal, as well as horizontal). I have created text files for each of the velocity components (east, north, up/down) as well as the corresponding depths and latitude and longitude for each vector through the water column.

I was just wondering whether you know a way of displaying this data in 3D in ArcScene?

Kind regards,
