Displaying TIN faces by aspect

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

  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 aspect with graduated color ramp.
  6. Click Add.
  7. Click Dismiss.
  8. Click OK.
  9. The TIN faces are rendered with colors to indicate the direction that they face.

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 aspect with graduated color ramp symbology renderer.
