XML Details

XML file structure for representing volumes.

The Import GeoVolume from XML tool imports 3D volume features as 3D multipatches into the GeoVolume feature class in Arc Hydro Groundwater. The tool input is an XML file where volumes are defined as a set of triangles where each triangle is defined by three 3D vertices.

The 3D volumes represent 3D hydrogeologic units and can be viewed in ArcScene.
