The target and observer positioning tools don't get accurate locations for features in ArcScene

Last Published: April 25, 2020


When using Center on Target, Zoom to Target, or Set Observer tool on features, the resulting positional change may not be as expected.


This is because a randomly chosen vertex of a feature is used rather than the actual location of the click.

Solution or Workaround

When accurate locations are required, click on a raster or TIN based surface rather than on features.
