Optimizing ArcGlobe

The performance of your ArcGlobe document will vary depending on many factors, such as the volume of data you are displaying, the symbology options for one or more layers, your application settings, or the hardware you are using. In all likelihood, it will be a combination of these issues that is slowing ArcGlobe performance.

The most effective way of improving performance to meet your needs is to optimize the layers within the 3D view. For information on how to optimize layers, see these topics:

You can also improve the performance of ArcGlobe by adjusting application and machine settings. Important optimizations include the following:
