3D Image of the Palace

I used 3D Analyst and ArcScene to make this image (same programs used for the 3D image of the entire mountain). The data comes from the work that Ed Barnhart and his mapping crew did 5 or 6 years ago. I received the data in AutoCAD format and I continue to try to produce an acceptable 3D model of the site to help me understand how people moved around within it. When I produced this image, I added the building lines into the process as "hard lines" to try to contain the elevation points. The palace looks distorted because only one elvation point was included - that for the middle of the structure. Looks a bit bumpy.
