  1. Thanks Doug. That's basically what I decided to do (create separate layers). I've also posted to ArcGIS.
  2. Hello, I'm trying to animate a couple of projects I made in ArcScene. I've read and watched a number of tutorials on ArcGIS animation, but still can't find the answer I'm looking for. I want to make an animation where I show different layer attribute IDs fading in and out opposed to showing the entire layer all at once. For example, I want to animate the Geosection to Points tutorial layers such as the Borepoints, GeoSection, Horizon rasters, and GeoVolumes where I show the borepoints for different horizons separately fading in and out, then the GeoSection, followed by the different horizon rasters, and lastly the Geovolume horizonIDs (see some of the representative screen captures I'd like to animate turning on and off). I think what I want to do is make a Group Animation, however, when I do that, it shows every layer in the ArcScene project in its entirety, for example ALL the borepoints for different horizons, the entire GeoVolume (i.e., all three horizons at once), etc.. When I try to make individual keyframes of different layer attribute IDs (e.g., borepoints for horizons -5 through 7 independently), all I get is one track with 4 keyframes that are all the same, which is simply the last keyframe I made of borepoints for horizon ID=7 (I tried to upload a video where I captured a key frame of each of the borepoint IDs -5, 5, 6,and 7 selected and displayed separately, but apparently we can't upload videos?). Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Stephanie
  3. I'm still a beginner at ArcGIS, so perhaps you explain in more detail and how to correct the problem? I don't understand the difference between the "map and "output", or "map data frame" and the data itself. I thought ArcGIS could handle these types of differences on the fly now? All the data is from the tutorial and I haven't changed the datum, projections or spatial references (I don't understand the need for all these different terminologies, although I did read up on in ArcGIS Help) of the original data so I don't understand why the data would suddenly be incompatible. I looked at the data source under properties and for some reason they're different; this is what I found: All the data layers (Well, Model Boundary, etc.) use the following geographic coordinate system, projection and datum: Projected Coordinate System: NAD_1983_StatePlane_California_II_FIPS_0402_FeetProjection: Lambert_Conformal_ConicFalse_Easting: 6561666.66666667False_Northing: 1640416.66666667Central_Meridian: -122.00000000Standard_Parallel_1: 38.33333333Standard_Parallel_2: 39.83333333Latitude_Of_Origin: 37.66666667Linear Unit: Foot_US Geographic Coordinate System: GCS_North_American_1983Datum: D_North_American_1983Prime Meridian: GreenwichAngular Unit: Degree However, for some reason the raster file dem30m, provided with the tutorial, doesn't have any of the projection (i.e., Lambert_Conformal_Conic), datum (D_North_American_1983) or geographic coordinate system (GCS_North_American_1983) information associated with other layers, only a projected coordinate system (NAD_1983_StatePlane_California_II_FIPS_0402_Feet). Is this causing the problem? I just tried to project dem30m using the and got the following error (just like you state above): WARNING 000632: Datum conflict between map and output. How do I fix this? Thanks
  4. Doug, I deleted the GeoRaster catalog and ran the "Modify AHGW Geodatabase" tool. Then I ran "Raster To Geodatabase (multiple)" again and it worked! Thanks. However, when I went to edit the attributes of the GeoRasters catalog I got an error stating the GeoRaster "Spatial reference doesn't match data frame" (see attached). (I ran into this same problem when working on the "Creating GeoRasters from Borehole Data" tutorial.) I then reran the "Modify AHGW Geodatabase" tool using "GRS_1980_Lambert_Conformal_Conic" from the raster "dem_woburn" as the Spatial Reference (optional). But I got the following error: "WARNING 000632: Datum conflict between map and output." So I checked the spatial reference of the rasters I created from the BorePoint point feature (i.e., horizon5, horizon5b, horizon6 and horizon7) under "Properties" and under Spatial Reference it says "NAD83_Massachusetts_Mainland_ft". Can you tell me why the dem and borehole data have different spatial references and why this is creating a problem when I try to load them into a raster catalog? Thanks.
  5. Thanks Doug. I'll try that and let you know if it works.
  6. I also have another problem: I am unable to load the rasters I just made using IDW (as per the same tutorial above). I am getting an error stating "Failed to execute (Copyraster)". Here's the error message in full: Executing: RasterToGeodatabase 'C:\Users\Stephanie\Documents\ArcGIS\Tutorials\subsurface analyst\GeoSection_to_Points\Tutorials\subsurface analyst\GeoSection to Points\rasters\horizon5';'C:\Users\Stephanie\Documents\ArcGIS\Tutorials\subsurface analyst\GeoSection_to_Points\Tutorials\subsurface analyst\GeoSection to Points\rasters\horizon5b';'C:\Users\Stephanie\Documents\ArcGIS\Tutorials\subsurface analyst\GeoSection_to_Points\Tutorials\subsurface analyst\GeoSection to Points\rasters\horizon6';'C:\Users\Stephanie\Documents\ArcGIS\Tutorials\subsurface analyst\GeoSection_to_Points\Tutorials\subsurface analyst\GeoSection to Points\rasters\horizon7' "C:\Users\Stephanie\Documents\ArcGIS\Tutorials\subsurface analyst\GeoSection_to_Points\Tutorials\subsurface analyst\GeoSection to Points\woburn.mdb\GeoRasters" #Start Time: Mon Mar 10 17:17:38 2014Running script RasterToGeodatabase...Failed to convert C:\Users\Stephanie\Documents\ArcGIS\Tutorials\subsurface analyst\GeoSection_to_Points\Tutorials\subsurface analyst\GeoSection to Points\rasters\horizon5.

  7. Hello, I am using an AHGW evaluation license and working my way through the tutorials. I have tried again and again to complete the Creating Rasters from Cross Sections tuturial, but I can never create geovolumes. I think perhaps I've pinpointed my problem down to the GeoSections to Points tool. Every time I try the very first step (i.e., using the GeoSection to Points tool) using the Woburn_geosection_to_points.sxd, the BorePoints feature class attribute table doesn't seem to be updating correctly with the new 3D points. As the tutorial states, you should be able to open the BorePoints feature class attribute table and see that the "...GeoSectionID field was populated for each with the HydroID of the associated GeoSection panel (the original BorePoint features will not have a GeoSectionID as they were created from borehole data)." I've attached a copy of part of the attribute table showing both the original Borepoint features and the new created ones. Can someone please help me? I've been trying to finish up a presentation for a class and only have a 2 week period to do so before my evaluation license expires. Thank you, Stephanie
  8. One more thing...the tutorial states that only the following is required (i.e., there is no mention of the need for a Subsurface Analyst license): Arc View license (or ArcEditor\ArcInfo) 3D Analyst Arc Hydro Groundwater Tools AHGW Tutorial Files It does mention the need for an ArcGIS service pack, which I installed this weekend (SP1), but I don't believe this is the issue.
  9. Hello, I have a student license for ArcGIS 10.1 and am using the demo version AHGW 3.3.0. I am trying to teach myself as much as I can using the tutorials but just ran into a roadblock. I successfully completed the "Working with Borehold Data" tutorial this weekend. However, I am now working on the "Creating GeoRasters from Borehole Data" tutorial and just tried to run BoreholeLog table to Points command and got the following error: "This tool requires a Subsurface Analyst license. To activate the license select the Help > Register command in the Groundwater Analyst, MODFLOW Analyst, or Subsurface Analyst Toolbars. Could not create Point features from the BoreholeLog table. Failed to execute (BoreholeLogTableToPoints). Failed at Mon Nov 25 21:07:22 2013 (Elapsed Time: 3.00 seconds) This tool requires a Subsurface Analyst license. To activate the license select the Help > Register command in the Groundwater Analyst, MODFLOW Analyst, or Subsurface Analyst Toolbars. Could not create Point features from the BoreholeLog table. Failed to execute (BoreholeLogTableToPoints). Failed at Mon Nov 25 21:07:22 2013 (Elapsed Time: 3.00 seconds)" The University of Georgia, Athens, GA, does not currently have any student licenses for AHGW. Is it possible to get a student license? We have number of geohydrology students that I think could benefit from learning and using this tool, but no one I know at school has a copy. I was really hoping to use AHGW in my dissertation research and hope to find funding to purchase a full license, but for now I'm stuck. Thanks, Stephanie
  10. Hi, I'm new to ArcGIS and AHGW, as well as LiDAR data. I have a student license for ArcGIS 10.1, and downloaded the demo version of AHGW 3.3.0. I recently downloaded and mosaicked several LiDAR scenes in ArcMap for a mountaintop mine site in eastern KY. I want to work with this DEM in ArcGIS AHGW to generate subsurface stratigraphy, pre- and post-mining volume calculations, etc.. I'm working my way through the AHGW tutorials. However, when I display the DEM in ArcScene it isn't in 3D. Does anyone know what I need to do to the image to use it in ArcScene, e.g., turn it into a TIN or something else? I'm working on a project for my graduate-level spatial analysis class which is due in 10 days (long story...data I was trying to procure for my site never materialized so I'm down to the wire). Any help would be greatly appreciated since everyone's gone home for the holidays! I've attached a .jpg of the LiDAR data I mosaicked for my mine site. I'm excited to be a part of this community and will likely have a ton of questions. I appreciate your assistance and patience as I teach myself how to use the software. Thanks, Stephanie
