Hoping someone here can point me in the right direction.

All i want to do is put some labels on a globe in ArcGlobe. I've spent time looking here : and here

Howver, I can't seem to find any solid examples.

I've looked in the ArcGIS Snippet Finder when using Visual Studio as well. Also tried looking in the examples that include source code.

Is there somewhere else to look - am I overlooking something really simple? Any help would be great.

  2. Click the Globe Display tab.
  3. Uncheck Rasterize feature layer.
