Local 3D scenes in ArcGIS Pro are used to create models of cities and smaller scale features. They don’t take Earth’s curvature into account like the globe view does.

- [Narrator] Local 3D scenes in ArcGIS Pro…are designed for a much closer look…at the Earth's surface than the global scenes.…They're great for projects at…the scale of a city or smaller.…I'd like to explore the city of San Francisco…in three-dimensions by adding a new local scene.…To do that, I'll come up to the Insert tab,…go over to New Map in the Project Group,…and then choose New Scene.…That'll create a new global scene…and we can convert it to a local scene…by visiting the View menu.…On the left side in the View group,…we'll choose the Local button.…
This'll remove the effects of the curvature of the Earth…which won't apply to a map of the city scale.…Then, we can hold down the shift-key in our keyboard…and drag a box around the city of San Francisco to zoom in.…I'll go ahead and do that one more time,…just to get a closer look.…Now, I can start adding data layers to the map.…But that's actually the hard way of creating a local scene.…Let me show you another way.…I'm going to go ahead and close this tab.…
