I am working on a project which contains several choropleth maps (State and County level mostly). In very simple terms, I would like to create 3D extrusions of the polygons based on an attribute. So far I have worked in ArcGIS Pro and tried to publish these as a web scene but it seems that the extrusion part is not yet possible when publishing to ArcGIS Online. I am open to working with KMLs or other formats. In the end, I would like to be able to integrate whatever service or layer I create into the ArcGIS Javascript API but I am open to other platforms as well.


Currently the extrusion you are setting in Pro that would go towards publishing a feature service in AGOL is not supported in the scene viewer.

You can do this in code with the JS API 4.0(currently in beta, final coming soon!).

  • That is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for pointing me in that direction. – SteveC Apr 8 '16 at 22:46
