# LocationViewshed

LocationViewshed is an analysis object that renders a viewshed for a specified point location. LocationViewshed determines visible and non-visible areas in a scene view for an observer defined with a map location (point).

## Constructors

Creates a viewshed analysis object whose observer is defined using a point location. Provide a Camera and distance range to define the analysis frustum. Visible and non-visible areas are determined for an area defined by the camera and the min/max distance range. The parameters define the frustum over which visibility is calculated from the camera/observer location. Terrain and other obstacles between the observer and the minimum distance are excluded from the analysis, as are areas beyond the maximum distance.

Creates a viewshed analysis object whose observer is defined using a point location. Provide a map location and frustum parameters for the analysis. Visible and non-visible areas are determined for an area defined by the observer location, view angles, and the min/max distance range. The parameters define the frustum over which visibility is calculated from the observer location. The horizontal and vertical angles must be greater than zero to define a valid frustum and are constrained to a maximum of 120 degrees. Terrain and other obstacles between the observer and the minimum distance are excluded from the analysis, as are areas beyond the maximum distance.

## Inherited properties

Whether or not the Viewshed frustum is visible. The frustum visibility can be controlled for individual Viewsheds.

The horizontal angle of the observer's field of vision. Visible and non-visible areas are determined for an area defined by an observer location, horizontal and vertical view angles, and a minimum/maximum distance range. These properties define a frustum (3D solid) inside of which visibility is calculated. The horizontal angle must be greater than zero to define a valid frustum and is constrained to a maximum of 360 degrees.

The maximum distance from the observer at which visibility will be evaluated. Visibility is not evaluated beyond the maximum distance specified. This can be used to model factors that restrict the visible distance.

The minimum distance from the observer at which visibility will be evaluated. The minimum distance allows you to exclude obstacles close to the observer (the corner of a building, for example). Since terrain and other obstacles between the observer and the specified minimum distance are completely excluded from the analysis, this value should be relatively small.

The vertical angle of the observer's field of vision. Visible and non-visible areas are determined for an area defined by an observer location, horizontal and vertical view angles, and a minimum/maximum distance range. These properties define a frustum (3D solid) inside of which visibility is calculated. The vertical angle must be greater than zero to define a valid frustum and is constrained to a maximum of 360 degrees.
