The movie will not work here because it is a pdf. In this description, I will include notes for the presentation. Slide 3: On the left is the DEM dataset. It is 30x30 meter resolution and everything was georeferenced to NAD 83 Illinois State Planar West Zone. The image on the right was used for digitizing the shapefiles. It is a image taken from Google Earth that was brought into ArcMap and then georeferenced. Slide 6: This is a very basic ranch style house model created in Google SketchUp. Using the ArcScene Symbology, this model could be imported as a point. All of the other 3D models that is symbolized in the neighborhood comes from the default ESRI database. Slide 9: This image is used to show the underground water pipes.
