3D Visualization is increasingly important in a wide range of defense domains such as terrain visualization, sensor and weapons modeling, mission familiarization and rehearsal, and many others. ArcGIS enables both end-users and application developers to leverage numerous 3D Visualization capabilities which are available in many ArcGIS products including ArcGlobe, ArcScene, Military Analyst, and others. This presentation demonstrates the numerous 3D Visualization capabilities that are available to the ArcGIS defense developer. It shows how to develop applications that perform common 3D Visualization tasks including the display of draped and extruded 3D graphics, 3D models, and 3D Military Symbology. For developers interested in highly complex and custom 3D graphics solutions, the presentation also discusses developing custom rendering solutions using OpenGL extensions. This presentation presents samples, tips, and lessons-learned for developing custom 3D visualization applications using ArcGIS. It should be of interest to developers and anyone interested in implementing 3D capabilities using ArcGIS.
