Install and setup
ArcGIS Maps SDK for Unreal Engine is a plugin for Unreal Engine. In order to create interactive 3D GIS applications by using real world maps and 3D content from the ArcGIS Platform, you need to prepare your Unreal Engine project.
The plugin supports Unreal Engine 5. If you don't have it installed, install Unreal Engine.
The SDK provides four options to use ArcGIS data and other geospatial content within a scene:
- The Modes Panel UI provides the option to create a scene without writing any lines of code
- Components are behind the Modes Panel UI and provide the option to create a scene without writing any lines of code.
- Blueprints provide the option to create scenes using the node-based visual scripting interface offered in Unreal Engine
- The C++ API grants access to the plugin source code
