With Drone2Map, you can choose to create a scene layer package from the 3D textured mesh. In addition to viewing the layer in Drone2Map, you can share it as a scene layer in ArcGIS Online or your ArcGIS Enterprise portal. A scene layer is composed of three-dimensional mesh objects and includes z-values (elevation values).
Share your items
You have the following options for sharing your items, depending on your sharing privileges:
- Your organization—Sharing with your organization means only members of your organization have access to your item.
- Groups to which you belong—If you are a member of a group, you can share your item with that group. Sharing with specific groups restricts access to a smaller, more focused set of people.
- Everyone—Sharing with everyone makes your item public; anybody who has access to the portal website or ArcGIS Online, including anonymous users, can find and use it, and group owners can include it in their group content.
- Everyone, your organization, and groups to which you belong—You can share your item with a larger audience (for example, everyone and your organization) and also share it with a specific group. This allows you to categorize your item as especially relevant to a particular group while still making it available to others in your organization.
This process creates and stores a scene layer package in your account. If you're sharing to an ArcGIS Online organizational account, service credits apply.
Publish your scene
To publish your textured mesh as a scene layer, complete the following steps:
- On the Share tab, in the Share As group, click Scene Layer .
- Check the layers you want to share. You can share the following scene types:
- Point cloud (SLPK)
- SLPK Mesh
- Click the Properties tab at the top of the share pane. Check or uncheck the option for the scene layer to be shared as a Global Scene.
Scene layers can be shared in the project coordinate system by unchecking the Global Scene option. When sharing as a local scene Esri basemap layers will not work as they are intended to be used with the WGS 1984 Web Mercator coordinate system and do not project on the fly.
- Give your scene layers a Title.
- Optionally choose a Folder to share your features, provide a Description, and update the Tags.
- Check the appropriate groups for sharing your scene layers.
- Click Share.
