The 3D Analyst toolbox provides a collection of geoprocessing tools that enable a wide variety of analytical, data management, and data conversion operations on surface models and three-dimensional vector data.
3D Analyst tools provide the ability to create and analyze surface data represented in raster, terrain, triangulated irregular network (TIN), and LAS dataset formats. 3D data can be converted from a rich variety of formats, including COLLADA, lidar, SketchUp, OpenFlight, and many other data types. Analysis of geometric relationships and feature properties, interpolation of raster and various triangulated irregular network (TIN) models, and analysis of surface properties are only some of the numerous functions provided by the 3D Analyst tools.

Provides tools for evaluating geometric properties and relationships between three-dimensional features.
Contains tools that expose some capabilities of Esri CityEngine without requiring Esri CityEngine to be installed.
Contains tools that convert feature classes, files, LAS datasets, rasters, TINs, and terrains to other data formats. The tools are organized into toolsets based on the data type being converted.
Provides tools for creating and managing terrain, TIN, and LAS datasets.
Provides analysis tools that evaluate elevation information from raster, terrain, and TIN surfaces.
Provides numerous interpolation tools that can produce continuous raster surfaces from a given set of sample points, including hydrologically correct surface models.
Provides tools that perform mathematical operations on raster datasets.
Contains tools that enable reclassification of raster data.
Provides analysis tools that enable the determination of raster surface properties, such as contours, slope, aspect, hillshade, and difference calculation.
Provides analysis tools that enable the determination of surface properties of TIN, terrain, and LAS datasets, such as contours, slope, aspect, hillshade, difference calculation, volumetric computations, and outlier detection.
Features tools that enable visibility analysis to be performed using various types of observer features and obstruction sources that include surfaces, multipatches, which are great for representing structures like buildings, and 3D features.
