I have a Uniform Grid of 1KMx1KM squares as a shapefile with population data in each grid in a specific column as an integer. I would like to extrude each polygon based on the population and export the whole dataset using a python library. ArcScene can do this, but ArcPy can't hook into that program.
Can someone recommend a python package to do this?
It doesn't have to be dependent on ArcGIS Desktop.
I was looking at matplotlib, but I can't figure out how to create 3D bar graphs.
