I am having some trouble with something fairly simple.. I am creating a 3D subsoil model for display in arcscene - i can get it displayed nicely as points but in order for the model to be easier to read i need it to be displayed as a raster.
Every point in my shapefile has an assigned lithology in the form of a number, a z-value, and x and y values. My plan was to build a raster from this shapefile to display in arcmap, using the lithology field as the main display.
I however cant seem to work out how to convert it to a raster without losing all of the data! I have tried every combination of raster options i can think of! And i only ever come up with a raster with a value of either 0 or 3, or just some random numbers!!
There must be a way because i've seen it before - and i assume it is fairly simple! I just want to keep the z-values and the lithology values! In the end i hope to have a 3D subsoil model displayed in arcscene - with different colours of the lithology at the different depths!!
