I was wondering if anyone is aware of any tools that are available to measure building lean in ortho images from within ArcMap. I am aware of calculations and processes that can be used to measure and calculate an angle, but not a specific tool to assist within ArcMap.

    The Image Measurement widget was recently released. You can measure using the Base to Top tool. It requires an Image Service to function though. – MDHald Jan 4 '16 at 18:14
  • Thanks @MDHald. So if I understand correctly, the widget would not work on raw ortho tiles (ie: GeoTiff). – Ryan Garnett Jan 4 '16 at 20:51

    That seems to be the case. I have tried using Raw imagery from the server which is hosted in a Raster Catalog and was not successful. The tool seems to require an ESRI issued Image Service (presumably using a mosaic dataset + image server extension) – MDHald Jan 4 '16 at 20:57
