Maps in 3-D

After playing around with different mapping formats and using DEMs and hillshades, I tried porting the campus mapping project I am working on into ArcGlobe. For the most part the transition went rather smoothly. The biggest problem I has was that features that were not extruded came out blurry on the map. I fixed this by making the flat features somewhat transparent. I also had a lot of quirky issues with ArcGlobe not wanting to render the data. In the next few days I will be labeling the map and make it look more like the 2-D version of the map.
