I want to get elevation profile in ArcScene using arcpy. Specifically, I want to create tool used as follows: click tool button, draw line interactively and output a graph presenting elevation profile.
My idea is to use arcpy addin tool and arcpy.StackProfile_3d() like this:
class DrawTool(object): def __init__(self): self.enabled = True self.shape = "Line" def onLine(self, line_geometry): rasters = arcpy.ListRasters() table = arcpy.CreateUniqueName('profile_table', 'in_memory') graphName = 'Sample graph' arcpy.StackProfile_3d(line_geometry, rasters, table, graphName)
Unfortunately, line_geometry seem to be the problem here (a result of above code is just empty graph). I tried supplying a line shape in place of line_geometry and it works fine:
def onLine(self, line_geometry): ... line = r"line.shp" arcpy.StackProfile_3d(line, rasters, table, graphName)
Is it possible to convert line_geometry somehow so that it fits into StackProfile_3d()?
