Convert analysis results to features

The 3D exploratory analysis tools generate temporary visibility results. The analysis objects are interactive for quick adjustments and provide on-the-fly analysis feedback in the scene. When your workflow requires specific design requirements, it is more beneficial to maintain a feature class of your analysis locations.

To save analysis results as a feature class, complete the following steps:

  1. Once the analysis objects are present in the scene, click the menu button Menu and click Convert To Features. The Export dialog box appears.

    If multiple types of analysis objects are present in the scene, only those associated with the active tool are exported.

  2. Type a name for the output feature class to be created in the default geodatabase. Optionally select a layer from the drop-down menu to append a new set of analysis objects into the existing layer.
  3. Optionally provide a description. This can be useful for labelling different analysis passes.
  4. Click OK.

The analysis results are saved to new features in a feature class. The feature class is added to the map as a layer automatically, listed in the Contents pane. If an existing layer was used, the analysis objects are appended to the existing layer.
