Add the Terrain and Obstacle Profile element

Available with Aviation Airports license.

The Terrain and Obstacle Profile element provides a view of the runway and approach surfaces as well as any obstructions and terrain that protrude through them. The appearance of this element can vary based on your organization's requirements and the specification used, such as FAA or ICAO.

To display the information properly, you first need to run the Generate OIS Profile Data and Generate OIS Obstacle Data geoprocessing tools. The Terrain and Obstacle Profile element can then be added.
