I am creating a 3D subsoil model for display in ArcScene - I can get it displayed nicely as points but in order for the model to be easier to read I need it to be displayed as a raster.
Every point in my shapefile has an assigned lithology in the form of a number, a z-value, and x and y values. My plan was to build a raster from this shapefile to display in ArcMap, using the lithology field as the main display.
I however can't seem to work out how to convert it to a raster without losing all of the data! I have tried every combination of raster options I can think of! And I only ever come up with a raster with a value of either 0 or 3, or just some random numbers!!
There must be a way because I've seen it before - and I assume it is fairly simple! I just want to keep the z-values and the lithology values! In the end I hope to have a 3D subsoil model displayed in ArcScene - with different colours of the lithology at the different depths!!
