Importing Bathymetry from Arcgis Online

One of the powerful features of linking Arcgis Online to FieldTwin is to import Bathymetry or Topography 3D Data directly from Arcgis online.

To demonstrate Bathymetry we are going to import bathymetry data from the online Oceans2 Server

In FieldTwin open your project and navigate your viewport to the area where you want to import data. This is best to do in 2D view. For our demonstration we are choosing a area just of the coast of Norway, to easily navigate we have already linked a Arcgis map server showing a ordinary world map.
