Display a scene

Display a scene with an elevation source. An elevation source allows objects to be viewed in 3D, like this picture of Mt. Everest.

How it works

To create an ArcGISScene with elevation data:

  1. Create an ArcGIS scene and set the Basemap with ArcGISScene.setBasemap().
  2. Create a SceneView and set the scene to the view, SceneView.setScene(scene).
  3. Create a Surface and add a ArcGISTiledElevationSource, Surface.getElevationSources().add().
  4. Set the surface as the scene's base surface: ArcGIScene.setBaseSurface(surface).
