Plugin elements

ArcGIS Maps SDK for Unreal Engine comes with additional tools that can be used to add functionality and visual fidelity to your ArcGIS scene.

ArcGIS Map Actor

The ArcGIS Map Actor is a high-level, drag and drop object that can be placed into a level to procedurally generate most requirements for a functional ArcGIS world. The ArcGIS Map Actor attaches an ArcGIS Map component and an ArcGIS Renderer component to itself, and automatically creates an ArcGIS MapView Actor.

ArcGIS Location Component

The ArcGIS Location Component is used to place Actors at specific geographical coordinates. For example, you can place a 3D model of the Eiffel Tower with an accurate geographic position and rotation.
