Raster to Geosection


Recommended Posts


I have an old geophysical cross section (jpg).

I want to insert this raster in a 3D view in Arcscene.

I know i can import my raster to XS2D but i want to keep it as well and then transform it into a geosection. Is there a way to do that ?

I dont want to digitalize it.

Thanks a lot !

I don't think there's a way to georeference a jpg image in ArcScene. You can certainly do that in ArcMap (http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#/entering_specific_x_y_coordinates/009t000000mr000000/) but that's only in X, Y.

As you mentioned, you can display them in the XS2D space (using ArcMap to display a single cross section), but as far as I know, not in ArcScene.

See the "Adding Images to Cross Sections" tutorial on the AHGW Learning Center (http://aquaveo.com/software/ahgw-learning-tutorials).
