3D Analyst and Local Scenes

ArcGIS Pro integrates 3D analyst functions through local scenes.  In the example below, building heights for Drew University campus were estimated using LiDAR data.

ESRI Press Workbooks provide useful step-by-step instructions on how to manipulate spatial data in ArcGIS.  The GIS Tutorial 1: Basic Workbook illustrates how to use 3D Analyst tools to visualize the topography and building footprint of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  An example of the steps and results of this workbook chapter are shown below.
