With the configuration of height info raster layers the functionality of 3D measuring for the tools Measure - Point, Measure - Distance and Measure - Area is available.

This chapter contains details of configuration for every type of height info raster layers.

 

icon_comment

The service containing the height info raster layers has to be configured as ArcGIS Server Map Service in the Map Collection.

The data for the height info raster layers have to be in a FGDB or Enterprise Geodatabase (SDE).

For 3D measuring capability the configuration of an elevation layer is mandatory.

These functions are only possible on raster data in the map services - the data must therefore be integrated as Raster Dataset or Raster Catalog. Mosaic datasets are not supported for these functions.

Property

Description

Raster layer ID

Unique ID of raster layer with elevation/slope/exposition/surface elevation information.

icon_comment

To select a raster layer from the drop down list, ensure that the MXD with the raster layers has been opened in the background.

Raster band

Raster band index to fetch data from

 

For measuring heights, slope and aspect, the following raster layers can be configured:

Elevation layer: Raster layer containing elevation data

icon_comment

The elevation layer has to be a raster DEM (no TINs are supported) of a raster data type supported by Esri.

The elevation layer has to contain the elevation information in a specified raster band.

The projected coordinate system has to be metric as well as the elevation information.

The raster dataset can be in a different coordinate system than the main map service (projection-on-the-fly is supported).

 

Slope layer: Raster layer containing slope data.

icon_comment

The configuration of a slope layer is optional and only affects the measuring results of a 3D measure area.

The slope layer has to be a raster with slope information in a specified raster band.

The slope information has to be in DEGREE (PERCENT is not supported).

 

Aspect layer: Raster layer containing aspect data

icon_comment

The configuration of an aspect layer is optional.

Aspect data have to be stored in a specified raster band and values have to be -1 for flat.

Aspect data values have to be from 0 (DEGREE) from North to 360 (DEGREE) clockwise.

 

Surface elevation layer: Rasterlayer mit Oberflächenhöhendaten

icon_comment

The configuration of an surface elevation layer is optional.

The surface elevation layer has to contain the elevation information in a specified raster band.

The projected coordinate system has to be metric as well as the elevation information.

 

Additionally, it is possible to configure the symbology for 3D measurements.

Property

Description

Fill color elevation layer

Specifies the fill color of the area below the elevation graph

Line color elevation layer

Specifies the line color of the elevation graph

Fill type elevation layer

Specifies the fill type of the area below the elevation graph

Line type elevation layer

Specifies the outline type of the elevation graph

Line width elevation layer

Specifies the line width of the elevation graph

Transparency level elevation layer [%]

Specifies the transparency level of the fill color of the elevation graph in percent. 100% means total transparency (invisibility), 0% means full color.

Fill color surface

Specifies the fill color of the area between the surface graph and the elevation graph.

Line color surface

Specifies the line color of the surface graph

Fill type surface

Specifies the fill type of the area between the surface graph and the elevation graph.

Line type surface

Specifies the outline type of the surface graph

Line width surface

Specifies the line width of the surface model

Transparency level surface [%]

Specifies the transparency level of the fill color of the surface graph in percent. 100% means total transparency (invisibility), 0% means full color.

Color of vertices

Specifies the color used for highlighting the vertex points of the original line

Size of vertex markers

Size of the markers - 0 means no markers will be displayed

Additionally, WebOffice 10.9 SP1 supports the configuration of multiple height info raster layers. It is possible to group several height info raster layers (elevation, slope, aspect and surface layers).

 

icon_comment

Querying height info raster layers of groups works in a special way. The defined order in the project configuration is used to find the first configured layer to be queried. It this is not possible (because this layer does not exist in the respective map extent), the query is passed to the next available layer in order. This method is used until information can be sent back to the client.

In order to always show the raster information with the best resolution, the administrator should take this into account when configuring the order to grouped height info raster layers.
