ArcGIS 3D Analyst Overview
ArcGIS 3D Analyst provides a comprehensive 3D context in which to analyse your data using advanced visualisation, analysis and surface generation tools. View large sets of data from multiple viewpoints, query a surface and create a realistic perspective image that drapes raster and vector data over a surface.
With ArcGIS 3D Analyst, you can:
- Analyse terrain data to determine what can be seen from different observation points;
- Model subsurface features such as wells, mines, groundwater, and underground networks and facilities;
- View and analyse impact zones from blasts and military threats;
- Determine optimum facility placement or resource location;
- Share 3D views, animations, and analyses with stakeholders and decision makers; and
- Create a 3D virtual city to support planning and maintenance.
Who Benefits from 3D GIS?
A 3D perspective creates a realistic simulation of a project, environment, or critical situation to help a variety of clients plan and prepare for and proactively mitigate potential issues.
- City planners and developers can visualise the impact of proposed projects and share insights with community stakeholders.
- Mining and geoscientists can examine subsurface structures and calculate volumes.
- Facility managers can create and maintain building, infrastructure, and utility networks.
- Civil engineers can perform line-of-sight and shadow analyses for buildings, cell towers, and utility infrastructure.
- Police and security personnel gain more complete situational awareness.
- Military personnel can perform realistic mission and flight path analyses of potential threats.
ArcGIS 3D Analyst is also available as an extension for ArcGIS for Server and ArcGIS Engine.
