I'm using ArcGIS 10.0 and trying to open a digital elevation model in ArcScene. I'm working on a project and got the DEM data from official sources which is quite huge. The resolution of the DEM is 1 meter. The total size is unknown but I think it's about 10km in diameter. The total file size is 1.5 GB.
Trying to add the DEM to ArcScene, using rightclick on Scene layers > Add Data and selecting the DEM, gives me the following message:
Could not add the specified data object to the scene. Try using a smaller subset.
Failed to open raster dataset.
Is the DEM too big? Why is that message? Could it be my total memory is not enough?
I'm running ArcScene 10.0 in a VirtualBox machine with Windows 7x86, with 2 processors 3.2 GHz and 4 GB memory allocated.
How to select a smaller subset? I neither see any option to do so nor find any subsets.
