The process of creating, publishing, and managing scenes involves different parts of the ArcGIS platform. This table summarizes these tasks and provides links to help topics with more information. It assumes, though, that you or an ArcGIS Enterprise administrator have already Installed and configured a base ArcGIS Enterprise deployment (ArcGIS Server, ArcGIS Data Store, Portal for ArcGIS) and ArcGIS Pro.
|Tasks||Information and instructions||Tips|
Create a scene in ArcGIS Pro.
See Scenes in the ArcGIS Pro help.
Configure the scene in ArcGIS Pro.
See Author a web scene in the ArcGIS Pro help.
Publish a web scene to Portal for ArcGIS.
See Publish scenes in the Portal for ArcGIS user help.
Connect to the portal as a member of a role that has privileges to create content and publish hosted feature and scene layers.
Open a hosted scene layer in the scene viewer and modify the scene.
See Get started with scenes in the Portal for ArcGIS user help.
Use a web browser that supports WebGL.
Create and publish an elevation layer.
The scene viewer in Portal for ArcGIS contains a default World Elevation Service from ArcGIS Online. However, if you have higher resolution data you want to use, you can add your custom elevation surface to a scene in ArcGIS Pro, and publish a web scene to create an elevation layer in your portal. See Elevation surfaces in the ArcGIS Pro help.
If your portal is not connected to the Internet and you need to publish and set your own default elevation service for the scene viewer, see Configure default elevation surface in the Portal for ArcGIS administrator guide for instructions.
See Manage data store backups in the ArcGIS Data Store help or Portal for ArcGIS administrator guide.
ArcGIS Data Store relational and tile cache data store backups grow large quickly when you publish hosted scene layers. Be sure your data store backup locations are large enough to accommodate the volume of data.
