WHAT IS the appropriate spatial reference to publish voxel, my voxler layer has "WGS 1984 Web Mercator (auxiliary sphere)

" or is it actually another problem why the basemap is not seen in my scene?

Hi,

The issue is the Scene Viewer requires cached layers to have the same horizontal as well as vertical coordinate system. Since there is a mismatch in the vertical coordinate system the basemap is automatically dropped.

 

To get around this you can create a projection file with Web Mercator horizontal coordinate system only. You can then place it next to the netCDF file in the file system. From there add the netCDF as a voxel layer and create a voxel scene layer and the basemaps should remain in the scene.

As a side note, in ArcGIS Pro 3.0 (June 2022 release) the GA Layer tool is updated so this arcinfo vcs will no longer show up in the output leading to this problem that you are running into.

 

thanks,

Andrew
