ArcGIS Scene Viewer continuously improves the ease of use and capabilities to analyze the built and natural environment. With the latest February release, we are introducing new capabilities to help you interactively analyze your 3D content through new perspectives, improved accuracy and better visualization.
New perspectives – Use Slice tool to analyze your voxel layer
Voxel layer was brought to Scene Viewer last year. Read the blog to learn more. This is a crucial feature to help reveal complex multi-dimensional data in a browser. Starting from this release, you can use the slice tool to explore and analyze your voxel data further. Reveal hidden patterns using vertical and horizontal slices for the entire extent of the volume. The newly added pop-ups provide even more information on individual voxels in the data set.
Improved accuracy – Snap to features while measuring in Scene Viewer
We have been continuously improving the user experience of editing and analyzing. This now includes snapping to feature while measuring in Scene Viewer for the Direct Line Measurement and Area Measurement 3D tools. Along with Dimension tool, Scene Viewer provides an experience to accurately and explicitly measure the length of a bridge or identify the area of a rooftop garden.
Tip: Hold the Ctrl key, if you want to temporarily disable snapping.
Over the past few years, visual quality has been one of our top priorities. In this release, terrain is improved with enhanced shading and higher elevation resolution, which will allow a better visual representation of hills, mountains, and even ski resorts.
In this release, Scene Viewer also allows you to append custom request parameters for supported layers. You can add them when adding a layer via URL or edit your parameters in the layer properties panel.
Do give it a try and let us know what you think. If you will be at 2023 Dev Summit, come and join the Scene Viewer session at March.7th, 2:30PM.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
