Property Details
layers[] An array of elevationLayer objects defining the elevation of the ground in the web scene.
navigationConstraint Object determining whether the camera is constrained to navigate only above, or also under the ground surface. If not specified, navigation is constrained to above ground.
surfaceColor Defines the color of the ground surface, displayed underneath the basemap. If no color, the default grid is shown.
transparency The transparency of the ground surface. It is used for seeing through the ground, therefore this property also changes the transparency of the basemap.
