Exporting Terrains

You can export terrains as tile packages (TPK), images, or geometries by selecting the map layer(s) to export.

Exporting Terrains to Tile Package (TPK)

Click File -> Export...-> Export Selected Layers as TPK.

Choose to export both the basemap and elevation terrain files as TPK's or just select one of them. For Scene Environment, you have the option of exporting the terrain for either a global or local scene.

If you chose to export both Basemap and Elevation maps, you will have a {filename}_Basemap.tpk and a{filename}_Elevation.tpk file in your output folder.

Sign in to ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise to share the TPK's with your organization or the public. Right-click the TPK file you want to share and click Share as....

This opens the share Tile Package dialog. Fill out the necessary fields and click Share.

Go to the Content tab in your account in ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise and publish the TPK as a hosted elevation or tile layer.

Exporting Terrains to Image

To export to image files, select File -> Export -> CityEngine -> Export Selected Terrains as Image and choose a format.

Exporting Terrains to Geometry

To export to geometry files, select File -> Export -> CityEngine -> Export Models of Selected Shapes and Terrain Layers and then choose a format. The rest of the process is similar to the model exporter.

The KML and the Esri Scene Layer Package formats do not support exporting terrains
