Or you can use the mouse wheel to move in and out. Stay ahead with the world’s arcglobbe comprehensive technology and business learning platform. If you attempt to launch ArcGlobe or any other Globe Control based application, such as ArcGIS Explorer or ArcReader through remote desktop, you will receive a pop-up notification that this ability has been disabled. ArcScene loads all arclgobe into available memory and uses paging files if necessary. Most of your data is within one square mile around a group of oil wells.

In global mode I might navigate here:. Many of the tools should look familiar though some are new: To identify the best candidate locations for placing a forestry fire watchtower.

An ArcGlobe Tutorial

Hold both buttons down tuyorial drag to pan the view. ArcGlobe is an excellent application for visualizing large, global data. You also have a TIN for elevation relief.

The Table of Contents has three sets of layers turned on by default: Stereo viewing is a great way to enhance the 3D visualization experience. You have an aerial photograph, 3D polylines for the vertical drill paths, multipatch data for underground salt domes, and 2D lines for the outgoing oil pipelines.

Display of KML data. To create an interactive environment for general display and analysis. The layer is added to the map but for some strange reason is usually place under the Imagery layer and is therefor not visible — dragging it above that layer, symbolising by landcover category and adding some transparency gives us:.

We can tweak the symbol settings to get it scaled to its actual size and placement but this is probably pretty good for now. However, ArcScene is better optimized for analysis.

These are the navigation control buttons.

Exercise 6: ArcGlobe Basics

Learn more about the ArcScene coordinate system. This is a nice way to demonstrate how viewsheds are driven by topography. Rotate an image either around the center of the Earth or around the center point of the image—doing global or local navigation.

Draped layers are like a bedsheet thrown over a piece of furniture — they take on the shape of the underlying xrcglobe surface.

Make animations of the images you generate. I generally accept this and click Finish. For elevation data, you have a number of tiled DEM rasters that cover the entire county. One of the most significant differences between ArcGlobe and ArcScene is how each application handles information management.

The 3D navigate tool at the left is used to move your viewpoint around. You have building footprints, road centerlines, park areas, and transportation infrastructure data for a city, based on a prediction model for 15 years in the future.


ArcGlobe projects all data onto a globe-shaped surface using one particular coordinate system—Cube Projection. A few things to highlight here before we go on.

I get this screen first:. The process of tutoorial indexes and organizes all your data into tiles and levels of detail. Measure distances along great circle routes.

It has very good performance at navigation and rendering high- and low-resolution raster and vector data. ArcGlobe has the same look and feel as Map and Scene but has some extra added benefits of display and flexibility. Again, it inserts it under my Imagery layer argh so next I drag it on top, play around with the symbology set the non-visible cells to No Color, reset the visible cell colour, add a bit of transparency and reset the view:.

Floating layers are layers on the globe but not attached to the surface in the help files they give examples of airplanes and argclobe. Once on the map it was pretty easy to navigate around.

You also have a raster DEM for about 10 square miles around the wells.

Globe recongises this as a raster layer and anticipates that I might be adding my own DEM.
