ESRI® announces the ArcGIS Desktop 9.0 Full Cached Elevation Data in ArcGlobe
Patch. This Patch addresses an issue with elevation data when generating
full data cache for multiple overlapping elevation data layers. It deals specifically
with the issue listed below under Issues Addressed with this
You must have ArcGIS Desktop 9.0 Service Pack 2 installed before installing this Patch. We recommend that all ArcGIS Desktop 9.0 customers, who transform raster data sets, to download and install this patch at their earliest convenience to ensure the highest quality experience when working with ArcGIS Desktop 9.0.
CQ00251483 - When having overlapping elevation data the application should pick
the highest resolution data and use that as the elevation source. It works as
desired for on-demand data caching of elevation data but has the following problems
when full data cache is generated for the same data.
The main issue is:
If you have two or more overlapping elevation data sources, where the no-data
area of one elevation overlaps with the data area of another layer, the no-data
area cells should be ignored and ArcGlobe should use the elevation layer(s)
that contain valid elevation data. Currently, when such type of elevation
layers are all turned visible at the same time, the no-data areas of an elevation
data layer can ‘knock out’ valid data areas of an overlapping elevation data
