Displaying TIN faces by elevation

In ArcMap and ArcScene you can display triangulated irregular network (TIN) faces by elevation. These steps describe how to display TIN faces by elevation.

  1. Right-click the triangulated irregular network (TIN) in the table of contents and select Properties.
  2. Click the Symbology tab.
  3. Uncheck Elevation (or any other TIN face renderer that is checked).
  4. Click Add.
  5. Click Face elevation with graduated color ramp.
  6. Click Add.
  7. Click Dismiss.
  8. Optionally, click the Color Ramp drop-down arrow and choose a new color ramp.
  9. Optionally, click the Classes drop-down arrow and choose the number of classes.
  10. Click OK.

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 elevation with graduated color ramp symbology renderer.
