The Local Government 3D Basemaps is a set of ArcGIS Pro projects that can be used to author high-quality 3D scenes for your local government. These scenes are organized in different Levels of Detail (LOD) and derived from 2D operational data managed by a department or agency within a local government. Once authored, the 3D scenes are a foundation for 3D workflows and applications; and provide a consistent geographic context across local government departments and agencies.
Local Government 3D Basemaps requires specific software.
