One of the most common ways to visualize a cityscape is to extrude buildings based on their height. If building footprint data includes a height attribute then a 3D model of the city can be generated.
- [Instructor] One of the most common ways…to visualize a cityscape is to extrude buildings…based on their height.…If your building data includes a height attribute,…then you're ready to build an easy 3-D model.…In the geodatabase for this project,…I've got a new data file that I've added…called Building_heights.…Let's go ahead a and click and drag and drop…that into the 3-D scene layer for San Francisco.…Then I'm going to click on the building's symbol patch…in order to open up the Symbology pane…on the right side of the screen.…I'll flip over to the Properties section…and change this bright blue color…to something a little bit more neutral,…say, this Gray 10%.…
I'll change the outline color, as well.…I don't want it this dark.…Let's change it to this one, Gray 50%.…After making both of those changes, I'll press Apply,…and the map will update with those new colors.…Next, I want to zoom into a very specific portion of the city.…Because there's thousands of buildings in this data layer,…if I try to extrude them all at once,…
