ArcObjects are single threaded components and they should communicate between each other only if they are in the same thread. If you want to update ArcObjects from a background worker thread, you need to pass objects as simple types, which in case of complex objects involves serialization. Th Writing multithreaded ArcObjects document covers these issues and ...

Render your own using POV-Ray, a ray casting engine that can make images of any arbitrary size. Here's an example earth centered on Southern California: http://geohack.net/earth/sb-2048.png See this excellent guide for details on the approach.

The highest-resolution, seamless and cloudless imagery you're going to find is from NASA's Visible Earth.

Your first test it to see if you can add the data through the standard ArcGlobe UI. If you can't add the data there, then there are other problems.

Merge the DTED dt1 rasters into a File Geodatabase Raster Catalog, then use the Raster Catalog to Raster Dataset tool (in Data Management Tools -> Raster -> Raster Catalog To Raster Dataset) to create one big mosaic. So far so good and it performs well and maintains its sense of elevation... repeat for dt2. Raster Catalog To Raster Dataset ...

You can import the models from sketch up or a cad file that is designed in 3d. The key for models in ArcGIS is multi patch. If going from sketchup export to kml. What you're after is the colada (.dae) file. A kml can be renamed to .zip and you will find the dae inside. If importing from cad just make sure the file has 3d units, and dwg will work fine. ArcGIS ...

If only the longitude of center parameter is changed, the visible extents of the world are the same. I must assume that the blue background shape is a graphic shape rather than a geographic one. I have seen the data frame re-center when changing the longitude of center, which it shouldn't. If the graphic shape is defined relative to the data frame, that ...

esri makes these cached services available on their data download (with subscription). esri data and maps for server The data includes pre-rendered tiles. But if I am not mistaken with that to start with you could create your own tiled service and modify the thresholds. It would take up "CONSIDERABLE" space. The ArcGIS online data would not even ...

As suggested by @radouxju I think the way to do this is by using the Create Fishnet (Data Management) tool to create your fishnet feature class. From the error message in your Comment it looks like you have tried to create this inside of your terrain dataset whereas I think you will have more success creating it as standalone in the file geodatabase. Once ...

Your fourth paragraph I think is the key to your problem and you've already solved it yourself. If your points don't have z values to start with and aren't draped onto your surface, then the values (2, 130) you're using are only above their nominal height of 0. If your terrain is higher than that, then yes, all your sight lines are underground. The reason ...

there is a tool called "make XY event layer" to display a points based on a table. You need a table with X coordinates, Y coordinates and your attributes. You will need to refresh your map when there has been a change, but otherwise ArcGIS will read from the table to display the points. the identify tools can be used to click on a sensor and display the ...

ArcGlobe projects all data onto a globe-shaped surface using one particular coordinate system—Cube Projection. All data added to an empty ArcGlobe document is projected on the fly to this coordinate system. Data that does not have projection information associated with it cannot be added into ArcGlobe. Being spherical, this application is optimized for ...

I was able to use the Full Frames (Uncompressed) option to export a short test clip to AVI. It played fine in Windows Media Player, and VLC played it but with some strange distortion. There might be something funny with your setup that's not really within the scope of this site to troubleshoot, but as a starting point use MediaInfo to determine what codec ...

The clouds on the animation seem to be on an vertical plane at a given distance (when the "plane is turning, there is some sort of acceleration of the closest clouds, but far and close clouds don't seem to be moving with respect to each other when the "plane" is approaching.) So, instead of trying to change the background (which doesn't seem to be possible), ...

I do not think you can use dynamic display (in the sense of using IDynamicDisplay) in ArcGlobe, but something very similar to what you are trying to do is described in the SDK: Implementing custom globe layers with dynamic feed. At 10, you can also use the new GraphicTracker API, which works for both 2D and 3D displays.
