Displaying TIN faces by slope

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

  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 slope with graduated color ramp.
  6. Click Add.
  7. Click Dismiss.
  8. Click the Color Ramp drop-down arrow and choose a color ramp.
  9. Click OK.
  10. The TIN faces are rendered with colors to indicate the slope of the TIN surface.

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 slope with graduated color ramp symbology renderer.
