Module 11: 3D Mapping

In Module 11 we learned about 3D mapping. This included using mainly ArcScence, but also ArcGlobe to a small extent. Exercises included creating basic 3D map, with graduated elevation colors, river layer, and points points of interest. Other exercises focused on using exaggeration tool to show elevation patterns in otherwise relatively flat area. Also using lighting to show elevation patterns, extruding features from 2D shapes, and extruding feature to an extent based on certain value (such a property value).

Finally we learned to create out of a 2D shapefile a 3D building footprint with actual building heights. Then we imported that 3D model into Google Earth, and displayed it on the Google Earth globe, in it's actual location.
