Displaying terrain faces by tag value

In ArcMap and ArcGlobe a terrain layer can be symbolized to indicate tag values across the surface. These steps describe how to display terrain dataset faces by tag value.

  1. Right-click the terrain layer in the table of contents and select Properties.
  2. Click the Symbology tab.
  3. Uncheck Elevation (or any other face renderer that is checked).
  4. Click Add.
  5. Click Face tag value grouped with unique symbol.
  6. Click Add.
  7. Click Dismiss.
  8. Click Add All Values .
  9. Click OK
  10. The terrain faces are rendered with colors to indicate tag values.

You can also display the terrain faces with the same symbol by selecting the Faces with the same symbol symbology renderer instead of the Face tag value grouped with unique symbol symbology renderer.
