ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Java

Open Scene (Portal Item)

Demonstrates how to open a scene from a Portal item.

Just like Web Maps are the ArcGIS format for maps, Web Scenes are the ArcGIS format for scenes. These scenes can be stored in ArcGIS Online or Portal.

How it works

To open a web scene:

  1. Create a PortalItem with an item ID pointing to a web scene.
  2. Create an ArcGISScene passing in the portal item.
