You might consider using the Visibility Index, which is a measure of the size of the viewshed for each pixel in a DEM. This way you could measure the overall visibility of a pathway or route. I wrote a blog on the calculation of the visibility index and some of the challenges involved that you might find useful here: ...
Have you considered using a model to automate this? You could use an iterator to step through each point and generate a view shed for it. Then if required merge the grids. If you do not know what I am talking about its time for you to open up desktop help and start reading up on model builder. This will allow you to automate this task.
Create a TIN from the 3D points Create 2D lines by digitizing the lines in ArcMap, using snapping environment to snap to the points you want. Use the Interpolate Shape tool to create 3D lines using the 2D lines and the TIN surface as input.
Out of curiosity I downloaded the NVS stream tool and ran it on a vector river network that has loops and compared the Strahler order generated by this tool with the Strahler order computed by RivEX. The algorithm used by the NVS tool is slower (not really a big problem) but more importantly it is not robust when it is dealing with river networks that have ...
I am using 10.2.1 and there seems to be a bit of an issue with the order in which the base height is set and the symbol assigned a size based on attributes. Long story short; it works better to set the symbol first then assign the base height both based on the same, in your case altitude, value. To symbolize based on an attribute field value: Add layer to ...
It appears as others experience similar issues with Multipatches and Extrude between. Unfortunately, without 3D Analyst license, I can only add comment to this question, not specifically provide an answer. From ESRI Geonet Nov. 2013: the enclose multipatch tool unfortunately yields bad results. I have a multipatch FC created from an extrusion between ...
