I want to measure surface volume of an area with different Plane Height above reference plane. There should be a tool for statistic calculation but I cannot find it in 3D analyst toolbox. Is it exist in GIS 10.1 ? Or which tool can help me to measure ?

I know I am late to reply.

There is Surface Volume Tool in Arc Toolbox. Using this you can generate area and volume statistics in ArcGIS.

[Arc Toolbox -> 3D Analyst -> Functional Surface -> Surface Volume.]

You can also add the Area and Volume Statistics tool from Customize->Commands->Search for 'Area' (as shown here). Drag this to add in ArcGIS menubar.

  • Thanks.Does this have the same functionality as surface volume in ArcScene?
