Create and access web scenes

The Scene Viewer can be used to interactively create and style a 3D web scene for your applications. Similar to the Map Viewer, the Scene Viewer allows you access and style layers to create high-quality 3D visualizations. You can also set the initial camera viewpoint. Once styled and saved in the portal, you can access the web scene by its item ID and use it in your 3D applications. Web scenes are stored as a JSON object in a web scene item.
