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.
    Note:

    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.
