Support for the web scene specification
ArcGIS Runtime SDK provides partial read support for the Esri web scene specification. This page describes support for web scenes and associates web scene features with classes.

ArcGIS Runtime supports basic features of global scenes, including basemaps, ground surfaces, operational layers, initial viewpoints, tables, and spatial references. It does not support local scenes, environment (lighting) settings, app metadata, presentation slides, clipping, range info, or vertical coordinate systems.
